To Space and Back: A Memoir (Paperback)
|Author: Mark Goddard|
|What made Mark Goddard kidnap a wooden Indian? Why was he arrested for carrying a Colt 45 in Boston? How did he deal with his infant daughter''s disappearance?|
"Danger, danger Will Robinson" is a phrase Mark Goddard often heard in his role as Major Don West in the 1960''s hit television series Lost in Space. During his real life, the phrase he should have heeded was "Danger, danger Mark Goddard." This memoir maps Goddard''s roundtrip journey from a small town boy to a TV star and back again recounting humorous anecdotes about co-stars and celebrities like Billy Mumy, Peter Fonda, Buddy Hackett, and Jim Brown. This trip gets bumpy along the way, though, with two failed marriages and a career nosedive before Goddard has the realization that changes his life. Told with humor and candor, "To Space and Back" gives the reader a roller coaster ride equal to any side trip the Jupiter II took on its way to Alpha Centauri.
