Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"Timmy's in the Well" is the story of Jon Provost, television's first child superstar, and the low-down on "Lassie," one of television's most enduring shows. It is filled with celebrity anecdotes, rare photos, and memorabilia. His episodes continue to air in more than 50 countries, the checked shirt and jeans he wore as Timmy hang in the Smithsonian, and he has his own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. "Timmy's in the Well" illustrates what happens to a middle-class American family touched by fame. Jon's first job came at age three, forever altering the course of his life and the lives of his family. At the age of twenty and on the verge of being swallowed up by Hollywood, Provost escaped to Northern California, only to learn that a 'normal' life was not possible. Unprepared to make a living, he was gripped by depression and fell into a well that was deeper and darker than any he'd ever face. But he found his way out of that well?on his own and without the dog.
PortraitJon Provost played Timmy in the popular TV show Lassie. He subsequently worked with Grace Kelly, Natalie Wood, Robert Redford, Clint Eastwood, Kurt Russell, Kim Novak, and others before 'retiring' from acting at age 20. Laurie Jacobson is a Hollywood historian.
