4.0 su 5 stelle Great resource on a great actor 2 giugno 2015
Di CJS - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Well researched bio of underrated actor Robert Ryan who excelled in films such as Crossfire, The Naked Spur, The Set-Up, and Bad Day at Black Rock. The book has an extensive bibliography and the author took pains to interview not only Ryan's three children but those who worked with him and knew both Ryan and his talented wife Jessica. Ryan's wife was a writer and some of her material was used in the book. The author goes over each film but does not bore us with interminable summaries of the film but let's us know Ryan's contribution and thoughts about the part. There were quite a few things that I had not previously known about Ryan, i.e. he served in the Marines but saw no combat and he and his wife started a private school and actually built the building. Ryan is portrayed as a private individual who cared deeply about his wife and was at a loss after her death. The book has plenty of photographs and a nice filmography. I only wish the author would have followed up at the end and let us know what each of Ryan's children (and perhaps grandchildren) are doing and if any followed in either his footsteps as an actor or in their mother's footsteps as a writer.

5.0 su 5 stelle This may be just about the best film biography I've yet to read 18 agosto 2015
Di Andy Moursund - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This may be just about the best film biography I've yet to read, on many levels. It's not that long, but it's extremely instructive about Ryan's work, his marriage, his political activism, and his relationships with the film industry. There's little in the way of tabloid gossip, but there's much about the formative life experiences that helped him to develop his distinctive screen persona. Ryan's little known to the casual "old movies" buff whose knowledge begins with Casablanca and ends with The Wizard of Oz, but to steady viewers of TCM and patrons of various repertory houses, he's right up there in the pantheon with the likes of Stewart and Grant, if not for quite the same reasons.

One other aspect of the Jones bio that I particularly appreciated was the constant mentioning of Ryan's wife Jessica, how they related to each other, and how their marriage survived over the years in spite of their constant separations due to his work. Towards the end of the book, Jones quotes extensively from Jessica's unpublished diaries, with passages that evoke Betty Friedan and later feminist writers. This not only helps us to a greater understanding of Ryan himself, but also suggests the possibility of a shorter separate book about Jessica Cadwalader Ryan, who herself was a much-published writer. But in any event, I couldn't recommend this book more highly. Definitely one of the best books I've read all year.

4.0 su 5 stelle Good book about an excellent actor 4 marzo 2017
Di TheGuru - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Good book about an excellent actor... In the last few years I have really gotten into Robert Ryan as actor. In the past seeing him in Movies, TV, etc. has always impressed me as a character actor, but even in scenes with the star of the picture(s), he seemed to grasp your attentions, of which I'am sure any top billed star worried when he was in one of their movies - he did not do it intentionally, it was just happened naturally, like everything about his acting and life. Watching him on day on screen, in the 1949 movie "The Set up" - that performance just exploded of the screen like a knock out punch! no pun intended. As I started to look closer at all his movies, whether they were stinkers or not, he wasn't!

He really mesmerized me in how flawless he was -his so-natural style of acting - other actors would have played some of those explosive parts so over the top, unnatural like, were as when Ryan did it was so real, that it was "so natural", in it was himself! You accept it, hands down.

We all know how great Spencer Tracy was, and it was due to how he approached it by not acting; you never knew he was acting. In Ryan you get that same, yet from a different view, a tough guy, that of what he most associated with, although he showed tenderness in other vehicles he did; "About Mrs. Leslie" (1954) - "King of Kings" (1961). He also shows the heartfelt comedic performance in "Gods Little Acre" (1958). He was very versed as an actor, but his tough guy performances are bar-non tops - from a simple stare to a physical beaten, no one can match his naturalism.

When in looking at Tracy and Ryan acting approaching similarities, there is a non better way to see it than when you watch them at the same time on screen such as in the movie, "Bad Day At Black Rock", (1955) - although their characters are different in nature, in real life, their acting approach is the same, that you are convince its not an act but to real people simply living it in front of your eye. To prove this, while taking a break on the set of "Bad Day At Black Rock", Tracy mentions to Ernest Borgnine, who is playing a character role in the movie, if he too was scared of Ryan? Were Borgnine ask what he meant by that? Tracy says; that he's not sure if Ryan is going to really hurt him (physically speaking) in the a scene coming up. Meaning Ryan is so himself that not even one of the best actors that ever lived can be sure!

The book gets into a lot of the Ryan's personal family lives; he and his wife's (Jessica Cadwalader ) involvements in politics and children schooling. Theirs and other close friends financial involvement, and personally involved hands on in starting/building Oakwood School for children in North Hollywood, California; none discriminatory school, which was big deal, for discrimination was so rampant in those days; Jews (Anti-Semitic) and Negroes.

His also heavy involvement of Liberal politics in being on the forefront in trying to get certain delegates into the Whitehouse or Governors mansions. He was always a tough liberal and outspoken about it, and true to his persona; didn't care if he was not favored by his peers - Ryan was who he was - not a follower, as he lived on/by his terms - he was very family orientated and did not hob-nob in the Hollywood scene, such as parties or other flamboyant activities . He was a guy that worked hard at no mater what he did, and always came home after work to his family. He really was a family man, not what one expects from a so-called Hollywood star.

Directors and producers could always depend on Ryan for as good as it gets performance no mater the paycheck, big or small, he was a true professional.

This book allows you to know and understand the person you only knew on screen - behind close doors - he was not much different than that of what you seen on the screen, yet in other ways, he had a side we learn about we did not know, such as his family life.
You also learn about person that was very approachable, as a person; not wanting all the fame and hoopla, just to be able to do his work, as good as he could and get a decent paycheck for it, and through it all, live a life in a normal fashion.

I got the feeling in reading the book that his approach to everything he did was to keep it real and "Simple", whether it was work, play or just everyday life itself. He was the guy you wanted living next door to you, you know the neighbor ready to offer a hand helping you mend your fence if needed. He frowned on that guy," hey don't touch me I am Star!" type; in all, he was just a very simple and cool guy, with a great talent.

Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
this is a masterful story/history of the great american actor with more than enough detail to satisfy the curious film buff. the book gives you insight, including his own, on both his personal and professional lives. there is also plenty of interesting information about the names/people and issues that were around and of interest during mr ryan's career days. as with a similar book on "Charlie" McGraw, there is plenty of period flavor in this book. for many film buffs, we like to know something about the actors we see on the screen and this book does not disappoint.
