From Cyrano to Magoo: My Years with Jose Ferrer and Jim Backus

by ,

After detailing his experiences with The Beach Boys in his book, Endless Summer: My Life With The Beach Boys, Jack Lloyd now retraces his life as he emerges from the psychedelic drug scene of the 1960s with rock stars Jimi Hendrix and Eric Burdon to a chance meeting with award-winning actor and film star, Jose Ferrer. As their lifelong friendship blooms, Jack engages with a parade of celebrities that would make a Who's Who of Hollywood envious . . . Frank Sinatra, Omar Sharif, Paul Lynde, Dustin Hoffman, William Shatner, Telly Savalas, Leslie Nielsen, Donald O'Connor, Rosemary Clooney, Jack Lemmon, and Lana Turner, to name but a few. When a surprising turn of events brings "Mr. Magoo" and Gilligan's Island's "Thurston Howell III" Jim Backus into Jack's life, the two embark on an incredible roller coaster ride through the hills and valleys of show business with stars such as JoAnne Worley, Merv Griffin, William Peter Blatty, Natalie Schafer, Peter Marshall, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Lynde, Milton Berle, and Jerry Lewis. Enjoy the fascinating ups and downs of Joe and Jim and the crazy house that Jack built. Hide synopsis
