Books: I found these books very helpful
in different venues of life. These
are all available through B&

Some of My most watched and cherrished Films: You'll inevitably see a trend if you've viewed many of these.

Uta Hagen: "A Challenge for the Actor" This is a wonderfully helpful book for actors of any experience level-it's clear, insightful, and beautfully written by one of the world's top actors and minds ever.

David Mamet: "True and False-Heresy and common sense for the actor" Written by the award winning creator of scripts, screenplays and stories-This is to the point; no holds barred!
Also by David Mamet: "Glengarry Glen Ross"- "American Buffalo"-"Oleana".

Paul Alexander: "James Dean-Boulevard of Broken Dreams"
This is the first and still favorite book I read about the brilliant flash in history known as "Jimmy". Perfect!!!

David Dalton: "James Dean-The Mutant King"
Yet another great (and different) take on the Legend.

Ronald Martinetti: "The James Dean Story" Wonderful.

John Gilmore: "Live Fast Die Young-Remembering the Short Life of James Dean" Intriguing view from a Very close friend of his.

Antoine de Saint Exupery: "The Little Prince"
Though catagorized as a 'childrens' book-it's anything but. This tale contains lessons that one can and should apply directly to life. Eye opening and Touching!
