Movie Addict Headquarters presents Chris Lemmon in an encore discussion of A Twist of Lemmon, the acclaimed book he wrote about his father Jack Lemmon, one of Hollywood’s greatest movie stars. Chris has created a touching memoir, one that reveals the beloved family man behind Jack Lemmon’s star persona. But, happily for movie fans, he includes many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories relating to his father’s remarkable movie career as well as personal tributes from such well-known show biz greats as Neil Simon, Blake Edwards, Cliff Robertson, Andy Garcia, Julie Andrews, Tony Curtis and Shirley MacLaine.
Jack Lemmon was a convincing actor in so many wonderful films, including Days of Wine and Roses, Mr. Roberts, Some Like It Hot, The Odd Couple, Save the Tiger, The Apartment, Missing and The China Syndrome. He was skilled at doing both comedy and drama equally well – and moviegoers couldn’t seem to get enough of him. Following in his father’s footsteps, Chris chose show biz as his career. Among the highlights of his impressive background are appearances in over 20 films – three with his dad (Airport ’77, That’s Life! and Dad). Chris is also a screenwriter, producer and musician.
