Product Overview

Robert Mitchums bad boy reputation that colors his public profile has been both earned and undeserved. Jerry Roberts discusses the actors career, his cult status, his under-appreciated talent, his forgotten films, and his nonchalance.This book catalogues previously published information on Mitchum, taking a full measure of the actor and describing the events that occasionally brought him more notoriety than his movies. The books biographical essay and annotated filmography scrutinize his performing style. Many yarns about Mitchum have been repeated and modified into legend. But much of the Mitchum myth has been just that: myth. The final word here on various rumors and stories comes from the confirmations, clarifications and corrections made by Robert Mitchum during an interview with the author and in correspondence with several members of the Mitchum family. As with the other Bio-Bibliographies in the Performing Arts, this biographical essay is followed by a chronology, annotated filmography, television, stage, recording and writing credits, list of awards, annotated bibliography listing 1,300 entries and a comprehensive index. *Author: Roberts, J.
