Arthur Kennedy, Man of Characters

Author: Meredith C. Macksoud, Craig R. Smith, Jackie Lohrke, Laurie Kennedy Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/08/2020

Kennedy was sought by both Hollywood and Broadway for dramas involving real people struggling with real problems. His talents were recognized with several Academy Award nominations and the winning of a Golden Globe and a Tony award. This work covers Kennedy's film and stage career, film-by-film and play-by-play, and provides pictures, synopses, and commentary for each one. Acting anecdotes from Kennedy himself or from his peers in film and on stage, such as Errol Flynn, Elia Kazan, James Cagney, Ida Lupino, Humphrey Bogart, and many others, bedizen the commentary. Among the films and plays included are Joy in the Morning, Henry IV Part I, Strange Alibi, High Sierra, Bad Men, Desperate Journey, Cheyenne, The Window and Champion.
