📙 Double-Act: The Remarkable Lives and Careers of Googie Withers and John McCallum by Brian McFarlane — epub download


Not many can boast of careers that lasted successfully for nearly 70 years, but that is what was achieved by Australian actors Googie Withers and John McCallum. Withers acted everything, from brazen murderesses to Lady Bracknell, as well as a broad range of everyman characters, such as blonde nitwits, wartime Resistance workers, lady farmers, and Shakespearean women. McCallum not only performed memorably in all the acting media, but he was also a pioneer Ëœproducer in Australian television, sending the popular series Skippy the Bush Kangaroo into the far corners of the world. He was also the managing director of a huge theatrical firm, a film director, a playwright, and an author. Just as remarkable was their 62-year marriage, not all that common in the entertainment world, and the way their marriage succeeded is as fascinating as their varied and prolific careers. There were plenty of disagreements along the way, but underlying all was their profound respect for each other's work and a kind of love that was essentially complementary. Together, in professional and personal matters alike, Googie Withers and John McCallum were an unbeatable combination. *** "...engagingly presented biography of two truly exceptional and talented people who ultimately and successfully combined competitive acting careers and a marriage. An inherently fascinating read from beginning to end..." - Midwest Book Review, MBR Bookwatch: August 2015, Micah's Bookshelf (Series: Biography) [Subject: Biography, Australian Studies, Theater, Entertainment]
