Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them

About the Book

A memoir from celebrated actor Frank Langella, told in an irresistible collection of never-before-told vignettes detailing the Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee's relationships and encounters with some of the 20th century's most beloved celebrities.

Rita Hayworth dancing by candlelight; Elizabeth Taylor tenderly wrapping him in her Pashmina scarf; streaking for Sir Laurence Olivier in a drafty English castle; terrifying a dozing Jackie Onassis; carrying an unconscious Montgomery Clift to safety on a dark New York street...

Captured forever in a unique memoir, Frank Langella"s myriad encounters with some of the past century"s most famous human beings are profoundly affecting, funny, wicked, sometimes shocking, and utterly irresistible. With sharp wit and a perceptive eye, Mr. Langella takes us with him into the private worlds and privileged lives of movie stars, presidents, royalty, literary lions, the social elite, and the greats of the Broadway stage. We learn something, too, of Mr. Langella"s personal journey from the age of fifteen to the present day. Dropped Names is, like its subjects, riveting and unforgettable.
