We wept at his Oscar-winning portrayal of Marty. We gasped when he took on Frank Sinatra in From Here to Eternity. We were riveted by his performances in The Dirty Dozen, Bad Day at Black Rock, and Ice Station Zebra, and we laughed at his TV sitcom McHale's Navy.

Now, in this witty, candid, and revealing memoir, he tells his fascinating story in his own words. Book jacket.
