One of the most heartfelt, grateful, stupendous stories of a life well-lived... actor Michael Nouri, from untrained amateur to starring on Broadway with Julie Harris and being schooled by a pro in his early 20s, turning down Sam Peckinpaw to do this little film called Flashdance, which changed the world... break dancing and fashion for two... starring on Broadway again with Julie Andrews and then, Liza Minelli, handpicked by Blake Edwards, with a song crafted just for him by Henry (call me Hank) Mancini... a load of superlative work on stages and screens, starting with Goodbye Columbus, co-starring with Ali McGraw and Richard Benjamin... being hand-picked by Billy Crystal to be the only one to ever play DiMaggio (in 61*), straddling TV, Movies & Broadway, way before it was cool... his life's not so secret, secrets, shared... gratitude, peace, heart, and, how he does it. Plus, pearls of wisdom.
Loved every second of this. One for the books. He needs to write one.
