5.0 su 5 stelle The " Common Man" gets a Biography that would not " Burn him up" 26 aprile 2010
Di John Silence is Golden - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
When I was a kid, I first encountered Edgar Kennedy from the Hal Roach Our Gang /Little Rascals comedies shown every afternoon after school. Later I caught his RKO two reelers on WNEW, channel 5, New York at 2-3 am on its early morning "reel camp". Then in the classic routines with Chico and Harpo Marx in "Duck Soup" and so on. His exasperation was explained to me by my grandfather simply as "that's slow burn Kennnedy" and I found out that he also watched the RKO 2 reelers - fondly as he usually watched very little TV. As I became a film enthusiast, I always had a "soft spot" and regard for "Kennedy the Cop".

Edgar Kennedy was a long serving character actor in the silent and sound era's and against all odds at the lowest point of the great depression in 1932 graduated to his own highly sucessfull short comedy series at RKO that lasted for 16 + years until his untimely death in 1948. Acting and directing at the old Sennett Studio and later at the Hal Roach studio with Laurel and Hardy and Charlie Chase gave him ample opportunties to hone his comedic and directorial skills and this outstanding book chronicles his struggles and perservance as a non glamerous "ordinary man" to find a place against great odds securing a unique nitch / persona in a 35 + year Hollywood career.

In an era when hundreds of actors and actresses were vying for the publics attention and when Hollywood stdio system stressed stars and glamour it was the numerous character actors supporting the stars in hundreds of films - Edna Mae Oliver, Frank McHugh, Alan Hale, Eric Blore, Hattie Mc Daniel, Beulah Bondi, Nat Pendelton, Gail Patrick, Edward Brophy, Florence Bates, Eve Arden AND Edgar Kennedy who with the scores of other character actors as much as the stars that they supported are the reason why we watch and treasure these movies as much today as audiences did of 66 + years ago.

Edgar Kennedy was as well recognized for his "slow burn" persona in the 1930s and 40s as Fred Astaire was for dancing and Errol Flynn for swashbuckling. Never a major star he nevertheless was a viable, respected, much in demmand character actor. The author also shows Edgar as a good natured familly man who like the former boxer he was - always moved forward despite the hard knocks that often came his way.

I was pleasantly surprised that a biography like this could be published and find an audience in our "5 minutes of fame" era when a celebrity is "here today" and "forgotten tommorrow" !!. This book is entertaining, well researched, has great pictures and the author obviously has a fondness for his subject. I strongly recommend this book to all film and film comedy buffs and give it 4 1/2 stars - Recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Book For All Fans of Comedy Films 23 giugno 2014
Di Eric Schultz - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Mr. Cassara has really done a fine job in researching and writing a full-length biography about Edgar Kennedy, a comic actor who died over 60 years ago and who never had a book devoted to him before. Apart from a few newspaper interviews and magazine articles about him during his life, there had been precious little written about Edgar Kennedy up until now. After so many years, finding comprehensive information about him would be considered a hard thing to do. Bill Cassara has researched everything available and interviewed the few who knew Edgar who were still alive, and so has been able to write a complete book. Cassara has been able to get a lot of `inside' information about his life, his career, his personality and outlook.

Now we have full, comprehensive look at the life of an often overlooked figure in film history. Maybe Edgar hasn't been forgotten, but he has often been overlooked as a something of a footnote in film comedy history. Actually, he was a popular comedian who had a lot of `staying' power. He starred in his own series of shorts, plus appeared in many films with other famous comedians, like Laurel & Hardy, the Marx Brothers and W.C. Fields. If he had lived longer, he no doubt would have had a long career in television as well as in the movies. The half-hour sitcom was basically the format that he used for his 17-year long series of two-reel comedies he starred in at RKO. It was called 'The Average Man' series, and only his death ended that series, for his popularity never waned in his lifetime.

Although the main "bread and butter" of his film career was the 'Average Man' series, he played many supporting roles in feature films during the 1930s and 40s. He co-starred with Clark Gable in San Francisco in 1936, and with John Wayne in In Old California in 1942. He supported such film comedians as Charlie Chaplin (1914 Keystone comedies), Laurel and Hardy (various appearances 1927-30, and in 1943), W.C. Fields (Tillie + Gus, 1933), and the Marx Brothers (Duck Soup, 1933). One of his final roles was in My Dream is Yours, with a new film actress named Doris Day (released in 1949). This book will tell you the full story of his life and career. He was obviously more than just an 'average' guy!

5.0 su 5 stelle Terrific biography of a comedy great 19 aprile 2013
Di Ted Okuda - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I arrived late to this party, so to speak, having just read Bill Cassara's EDGAR KENNEDY: MASTER OF THE SLOW BURN, a terrific biography of a master comedian whose work continues to delight film buffs as well as those seeking good, solid laughs. Edgar starred as "The Average Man" in a long-running series of comedy shorts, but there was nothing average about his talent. He essayed a variety of roles (in addition to occasional directorial assignments) and was beloved as a reliable, endearing mirthmaker.
With assist from Edgar's relatives and a number of noted historians, Cassara paints a detailed portrait of the versatile performer and loving family man. And there are plenty of photos, ranging from uproarious to poignant, that capture the public and private sides of Mr. Kennedy.
Edgar's life and career was fascinating and rewarding, and that description also applies to this wonderful book.
