|Editors Note 2
||"This memoir is a peripatetic selection of Malden's enounters with larger-than-life Broadway figures... like Kazan, Strasberg, and Brando. The 1950s were Broadway's heyday but also the time of blacklisting, and Malden paints a vivid picture here of those times. Moreover, the actor eschews the 'down-and-dirty tell-all memoir' so common now to offer his views on the various acting techniques and methods he came upon. Recommended." - Library Journal
