Having been a fan of Mitchum's from adolescence through to his passing, I eagerly anticipated reading a biography that would fill out the many unknowns regarding the man, not the myth. This book is an exhaustive and fascinating record of his life and his work. The remarkable compilation of facts, quotes, personal anecdotes is far more than one might hope for and truly fulfills the promise of the promotional releases.

One can't help but become immersed in the descriptions of his early life, the new information regarding his life-long partnership with his wife Dorothy and her astonishing and stoic loyalty. The later chapters, providing sometimes wrenching descriptions of his descent into full-on alcoholism was, at times, a hard read. As with any person whose intimate thoughts and behaviours are often distorted when a subject of celebrity, Mitchum was portrayed as a loveable thug with a gift for charm and a magnetic screen presence.

He was a great deal more than that but, due to his apparent need for approval and admiration, he eventually evolved into a caricature of himself. He was a phenomenally well-read autodidact who yearned for aknowledgement of his intellectual strengths but was also remarkably self-destructive.

Having met him twice, in his early years of fame whilst he was having his car repaired in a shop in D.C. and many years later, in a small town in Virginia whilst standing next to him in a grocery store line, I found the few references regarding his gentle behaviour true to the person I observed. This second 'meeting' was a few years prior to his death but he still had the aura, the energy of someone 'other than' and one could see the early 'heartbreaker' still present beneath the craggy face and silver hair.

This biography is a remarkable work of research and dedication for an individual who truly stood out from the norm. One feels as though it's a gift to be given this opportunity to learn a full story of someone so special. Kudos to the author, he deserves them.

4.0 su 5 stelle I was not disappointed because Mitchum was unique 14 novembre 2014

I bought Lee Server’s 590 page (including the supplements and the index) biography, Robert Mitchum: Baby I Don’t Care, believing that I would read the life story of one of the most interesting characters to call Hollywood home. I was not disappointed because Mitchum was unique. I doubt that there has ever been another character like him on this planet. What I was not prepared for was that I would also read about the most revolting drunk I could ever imagine. For example, on page 493 of the St. Martin’s Press paperback edition, the story is related of a very drunk Mitchum attending the premier of his movie, That Championship Season when a 15 year old girl approached him, asked him for an autograph, and said, “I loved your movie, I thought you were wonderful.” Mitchum grabbed her, twisted her arm up behind her back, and flung her back where she had come from. He also emptied his bladder on David Selznick’s office carpet while being interview for a part in a movie. He had no close friends, only drinking buddies. He could spend all night drinking and give a perfect performance at the movie studio the next morning.

On the other hand, there are numerous testimonies from people who worked with him on pictures and who said that a sober Mitchum was warm, friendly, helpful, and one of the nicest people in Hollywood. He was also one of the most natural actors that ever filled the silver screen.

A sober Mitchum apparently had no ego problems. He was a magnet for actresses, young, old, and well known who would do anything to spend a night with him. He was married to the same woman for most of his life, and she was unperturbed about his many affairs because she knew that he would never leave her. The only woman about whom she became concerned was a young Shirley McLaine, who was 20 years Mitchum’s junior. Mitchum eventually broke off the affair, but they remained friends. I also recommend James Garner’s memoir, The Garner Files.

I give the book four stars.

This book is a cure for what ails you. A laugh a page. Sever serves up Bob Mitchum's life as it was lived, unconventional, sardonic, bloody amazing and ironically hilarious. I've read a couple Steve McQueen biographies and Paul Newman's and he and Mr. Newman both served on chain gangs in the movies (Nevada Smith and Cool Hand Luke). Bob Mitchum escaped from a chain gang before he was 18 years old. Not in a movie, in real life. He rode the rails, hitchhiked across America several times, was backstage at burlesque shows, built state parks, witnessed shootings and was shot at and again, all before he was old enough to graduate from high school. He wouldn't graduate because he took a dump in a teacher's hat. He was a prize fighter and took on three marines at a time and after kicking their butts always said, don't mess with the gorilla. His first stunt ride was in the clothes of a stunt man who fell over under a team of horses and was crushed. Mr. Mitchum was quoted as saying he started working in movies in a dead man's hat and well, he did. The man was the real deal. Buy this book if you want to vicariously adventure as a legend. Not just a movie legend, the legend of a man who lived bigger than life but never took himself seriously. Server's book does him justice. There will never be another one like him.

Super bio. The author painstakingly narrates Mitch's life in straight chronological order, from start to finish. By the time he's in the movie biz, his story basically becomes inextricably intertwined with his journey from one film location to another. You begin to understand that without acting, there's nothing much there, strangely like the actor Peter Sellers, who had a similar disposition even if completely different in expression.

The story gives a very balanced, warts-and-all, view of Mitchum. By the end you feel rather sorry for him. He carried a deep, inconsolable loneliness throughout life, and never quite came to grips with it. At the same time, he lived life completely on his own terms. He's the classic tortured hero, a modern-day Ulysses. The lesson, for me, is never let the demons, whether inner or outer, call the shots.

It's also very informative on the development of American film in the 20th century, about which the author is obviously extremely knowledgeable, yet without a academic tone at all.

All in all I found the narrative extremely compelling, and found it hard to put turn off my Kindle.

This is probably my favorite biography of a star. No holds back - the author really did his homework. After reading this book I really felt as though I knew who he was as a person - not just Robert Mitchum the star. It was funny, tragic and somewhat unbelievable in that "Mitch" was able to get away with some of his "activities" both with his wife, his studios, and the law. I have collected books, vintage photos & memorabilia about the Golden Age of Hollywood for over 30 years. My bookcase is full but I had to add this book to my collection.
