***Tony and Me
A Story of Friendship
by Jack Klugman with Burton Rocks
Reviewed October 6, 2005.
Good Hill Press, West Linn, Oregon, 2005. 141 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (MCN 792 KLU).
I’m not a celebrity watcher and don’t normally read celebrity biographies. However, this book caught my eye when I was processing it. Tony and Me is truly the story of a friendship, and because of that, it’s a warm-hearted book.
Jack Klugman tells how Tony Randall not only helped him become an actor again after throat cancer, but he also showed him what friendship is all about.
This book is a quick read. It doesn’t go into every detail of the two actors’ lives by any means, but it does show what a wonderful man Tony Randall was. And it does show what a good friend he was. Jack Klugman was clearly writing this book as a tribute to Tony Randall, and he succeeded. A short DVD is included with outtakes from The Odd Couple, showing what a good time the two of them had together.
This book will leave you with a warm feeling.
