You know the face. You know the credit list: Lost in Space, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Kung Fu, The Twilight Zone and hundreds more... But who was Albert Salmi? Born of Finnish parents in the Finnish section of Brooklyn, Albert Salmi had a childhood he would recall fondly, even though it was plagued by the hardships of the Great Depression. In an attempt to earn money as a teenager, he broke the law; and the very wise judge gave him a sentence that turned his life around. Salmi set his sights for an acting career and, thanks to the GI Bill, got the best training possible. The result was that for forty years he appeared on the Broadway stage (Bus Stop, etc.), national television (Alfred Hitchcock Presents, I Spy, That Girl, Dallas, etc., etc.), and in countless films (The Unforgiven, Caddyshack, etc.). Sandra Grabman's biography is a frank and loving tribute, combined with many memories from Salmi's family, friends, and co-stars, and includes never-before-published memoirs from the man himself. From humble beginnings -- to a highly successful acting career -- to a tragic death that shocked the world -- Albert Salmi's story is unlike any other you'll ever read. This is the updated, second edition!

From the Author:

Named "Book of the Year 2004" in Classic Images magazine!

About the Author:

Sandra Grabman is a Virginia native who was transplanted in 1980 to Oklahoma. It didn’t take living in the Wild West to make her appreciate the work of actor Albert Salmi, however. He has fascinated her for decades. When she learned of his tragic death and wanted more details about his life, she found that there had never been a book written about him and the pieces of information that were available in print and over the internet contradicted each other. She felt it was about time that situation was corrected, so she set out to find the truth and to write an accurate biography of Salmi. It would be her gift to the family, friends, and fans he left behind.

Spotlights & Shadows: The Albert Salmi Story is her second book-length work. The first is entitled Autism in the Family, a chronicle of her grown son’s first eighteen years and his successful integration into the real world. She's also the biographer of Peggy Ann Garner, star of the classic 1945 film A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
