I AM SPARTACUS! Making a Film, Breaking the Blacklist

by | Read by Michael Douglas, George Clooney

Biography & Memoir • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Actor, writer, and humanitarian Kirk Douglas, now 95 years of age, uses a powerful literary voice to describe his dramatic struggle as chief producer and starring actor of the big-screen epic SPARTACUS. Douglas’s choice of the blacklisted Dalton Trumbo as screenwriter is at the core of this revealing peek behind the politics of the large studios at the time. Despite his recent health challenges, the author’s son Michael provides a superb narration with wit, flair, and excellent timing. Precise, enthusiastic, and entertaining, the words leap into one’s consciousness. As a bonus, the author reflects on his emotions then and now as he revisits his 1959 activities. Actor George Clooney provides a tribute in the form of a foreword. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2012]
