'Some Like It Cool' is the story of Jack Lemmon, perhaps one of the best-loved stars in Hollywood's history. The first biography since his death in 2001, this book focuses not just on Lemmon's career, but also on his private life. It includes the story of his relationship with his mother, a broken first marriage, his drinking, his 'terrible' facelift and his fight with cancer. This is no rags to riches tale as his wealthy father sent him to Harvard where a Columbia Pictures talent scout invited him to Hollywood where the speed of his rise to success and stardom was astonishing. The author, Michael Freedland, who interviewd Lemmon frequently, confesses to being a Lemmon devotee, yet this biography presents a frank and honest account - as well as a celebration - of one of Hollywood's greats.
