9780786412013: Roy Scheider: A Film Biography

Over his more than 30-year acting career, Roy Scheider has redefined America's idea of what a leading man should be, thanks to his talent for playing an urban everyman that audiences related to and rooted for, despite his flaws and failures. He rose to fame in the early 1970s in the Oscar-winning films Klute and The French Connection (the film that he received his first Oscar nomination for), and garnered more critical acclaim in Jaws and Marathon Man, as well as a second Oscar nomination for All That Jazz. Scheider's life and career are chronicled in this work. Beginning with his childhood in New Jersey, which was marked by a somewhat rocky relationship with his father and three bouts with rheumatic fever, it traces his development from a community theater actor to a world-renowned movie star, and covers his most recent activities, including work in the films Better Living and Falling Through, which were released in 2000, and his Golden Globe-winning film RKO 281 that year. Includes a complete filmography.
