About this deal

I think I just don't know enough about Marty Feldman and I am even less interested in English life to care to look up the many expressions in this book. E anche la giacca e i pantaloni finivano con te sotto le lenzuola se volevi ritrovarli la mattina successiva.

This is an odd book as it really does seem to be the unedited notes from Marty, as if he was preparing an autobiography. Marty Feldman è un attore che chiunque appartenga alla mia generazione avrà visto almeno una volta, tipicamente in quel capolavoro comico che è Frankenstein Jr.In 1976, Feldman ventured into Italian cinema, starring with Dayle Haddon in the sex comedy 40 Gradi All'Ombra del Lenzuolo ( Sex with a Smile).

My mind is an attic full of crazy dreams that never quit or disappoint me, and I have been blessed with these eyEs to see things differently and have people see me in a different way. Feldman subsequently became an anti-gun advocate in the US, even wearing an anti-gun t-shirt and hat pin during his appearance on the late night TV show Fridays. Sarah Silverman * No one has ever made me laugh as hard as Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein, he was pure comic perfection. Towards the end of his life, Feldman was involved in a screenplay about Buster Keaton’s desperate later years writing gags at MGM.

my generation who loved Marty Feldman will be enthralled by this honest self appraisal of a life which began with so many disadvantages. Niente: in un capitolo ha ancora il suo viso di nascita, alla fine del capitolo si accenna alla malattia, in quello dopo si parla già dei suoi occhi peculiari. I've always been a fan of Marty's, and to read bits of his sketch writing and poetry scattered throughout an autobiography of fearless, comedy genius and scrappy bohemian bliss. An exception was when during a promotional tour for The Last Remake of Beau Geste, he denounced the campaign led by Anita Bryant against homosexuality. This too is a prophetic metaphor for Feldman - his early death, his lingering influence and, yes, his genius.

Marty Feldman finished, and set aside eYE Marty soon before travelling to Mexico to shoot his final film.A real gem and an essential for any lover of Marty, the Pythons and the surreal comedy of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Feldman attempts to tell the tale of his hungry years as a trumpet-playing vagabond until his rise to international celebrity, predicated on his googly eyes (the result of suspect thyroid medication), wiry stature, and an irrepressible bent for the bizarre. The autobiography is perhaps better appreciated if read in conjunction with Robert Ross's fine biography of the performer. And perhaps another biographer could have latched on to a detail like that and written a much better work – by acknowledging the brilliant moments and the great work, but zeroing in on how it all went wrong.
