(August 20, 2013) Oscar winning actor George Kennedy has many credits to his name already, but at least one more must be given, and that’s outstanding Author! In his self – written autobiography “Trust Me: A Memoir,” he takes the readers from the late 1920s to present day with his account of his career, but even more important, his thoughts on world events. He pulls no punches in what he believes, a trait I truly admire.
In Hollywood, which is known to eat up and spit out celebrities, George Kennedy showed perseverance throughout his acting career and even more so in his personal life. In Trust Me: A Memoir, you never hear a bad word from Kennedy about his fellow actors he graced the big and small screen with. He doesn’t claim to be friends with all of them, but he gives you a different perspective. For instance, when he talks about one of Tinsel Town’s greatest stars, Paul Newman, who acted alongside him in Cool Hand Luke, George earned a well-deserved Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as “Dragline.”
George, TRUST ME, you have left something I feel even more important than your body of work in movies, TV and Stage and that is your words that moved me and no doubt other readers as well.
Trust Me: A Memoir is a book you will not want to put down once you start to read it.
