Home Work (Andrews)
Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years - Emma Walton Hamilton,Julie Andrews Edwards

"[T]he pressures were tremendous. Yet she never wavered. Her optimism, delicious humour and selfless nature were always on parade. It was if she'd been hired not just to act, sing and carry the entire film, but to keep everyone's spirits up as well. She did. She held us together and made us a team. Julie was quite transparent. There was no way she could conceal the simple truth that she cared profoundly for her work and for everyone else around her. I think that beneath my partly assumed sarcasm and indifference she saw that I cared too. As two people who barely came to know each other throughout those long months of filming, we had somehow bonded." (In Spite of Myself, p. 396).

 

So wrote Christopher Plummer about Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music".

 

In her own always-generous if always-measured way, Julie Andrews returns the compliment in this volume (p. 55):


"I didn't see much of Chris Plummer beyond the workday, as he spent most of his spare time at the Bristol. Word spread that he was becoming renowned for his late-night performances at the piano in the hotel bar. In his youth, he had trained to be a concert pianist, and he was very good indeed. He apparently spent his evenings at the bar getting quite smashed and playing Rachmaninoff or Tchaikovsky until the wee hours. That said, Chris was the glue that held us all together; the one who always kept us from going too deep into the saccharine side of the story. He was so disciplined in his acting, so knowledgeable, that he was appropriately imposing as the Captain. Yet he was very gentle, and constructive too. He'd make suggestions as to how we would play a certain scene..."

 

In that last sentence is reflected one of the pervading themes of this volume of Andrews' memoir: her relative insecurity as an actor (she took no acting lessons prior to making these blockbuster movies), which is the more striking in comparison to her complete confidence in her musical side.

 

Just as her singing features impeccable diction and razor-sharp intonation, Andrews' prose here is correct and well-crafted (and has gone through careful editing, obviously, by her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton). Though it's idiomatic and not over-formal, you will search in vain for exclamation marks or exaggerations in her prose. The net effect, especially if you are not reading carefully, is rather emotionless. It is only if you look carefully at exactly which well-chosen words she has actually chosen that you can read the emotion, barely beneath the surface. This is particularly true, of course, when she writes about her family - her divorce from her first husband, Tony Walton; and her long marriage to director Blake Edwards, and creation of a blended family (Emma, two of Edwards' children acquired through marriage, and two adopted orphans from Vietnam).

 

The detailed portion of the book, true to its title, is largely focused on Andrews' Hollywood films - the three huge musical hits (Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and Victor/Victoria) as well as the somewhat lesser-known films, some hits and some misses (The Americanization of Emily, Hawaii, Star!, Thoroughly Modern Millie, S.O.B., 10 - and several others I've missed out, I'm sure). Since it's a chronological account, we also get stories about the Julie and Carol television specials, as well as her own TV series. In addition she chronicles the beginning of her side-hustle as a children's book writer. Since there's no mention of her late-life work (the Princess Diaries movies, for instance), I think it's possible that a volume 3 is in contemplation.

 

Oh yes, did that bond from "The Sound of Music" last? If you can believe the joint interview of Plummer and Andrews (2005) that I pulled up on youtube the other night, it most certainly did. The affection and respect between them didn't look at all acted to me.

 

If you're at all interested in Julie Andrews' work, or in Hollywood history, I heartily recommend this one.

Full Circle: From Hollywood to Real Life and Back Again - Andrea Barber
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I received a copy of this book through Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review.

A well-written, honest, inspiring, and entertaining memoir that gives a look at Barber's experiences with acting, fame, anxiety, divorce, motherhood, and life.

Throughout the book, Barber discusses her passion and talent for writing. This really shows in the book. The narration instantly pulls the reader in and she does a fantastic job crafting the stories of her life. I could definitely see Barber continuing a writing career.

As someone who casually watched Full House as a kid, but hadn't yet started Fuller House, I was interested in seeing an inside perspective on the whole phenomenon. I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting I found this book and how much I enjoyed it. It is easy to connect with Barber through the page because of her fantastic writing style.

While Barber deals with many heavy topics in this book, the overall tone is very positive. It emphasizes love, acceptance, and family, which ties in perfectly with the tones of Full(er) House. Even when writing about darker issues, Barber's positive perspective really shines through. She does not shy away from sharing her hardships, but emphasizes the light at the end and what she learned from the experience. I also thought she did a good job recognizing her privilege while still showing that she has struggled through various stages of life like any other person. A wonderful read.

As I was reading, the desire to watch Fuller House hit to see Barber's references first-hand. The nostalgia of watching the show as a kid came out and now I found a feel-good show that I really enjoy.

This was a great read that showcases Barber's talent for writing, her humor, and her mature and developed perspective on life. A remarkable book.

Bad Twin by Gary Troup (Laurence Shames)
Bad Twin - Gary Troup

This book started off as a promising homage to the noir genre with perhaps some pleasing Easter eggs for the 'Lost' TV show, but it quickly went downhill and got a little pathetic.

 

I gave up. We re-watched the show some time ago (I've come around to that ending, still not great - but at least its an ending) and I thought I'd pick up the tie-in novels. 'Bad Twin' is a book-within-the-show as opposed to the usual book-about-the-show or novelized version of a never-produced script. I would have preferred either of those to this...blatant money-grab. I feel sorry for the people who bought this in hardcover under the expectation of revelations about the show.

 

This sat on my bedside table for months and then for weeks more while I thought about going for a few more chapters. Did not finish, but I may check out the three actual tie-in novels, which are at least honest about their content.

Barbie as the Island Princess by Judy Katschke
Barbie As the Island Princess (Junior Novelization) - Judy Katschke

My old roommate and I still exchange gifts at Christmas, usually something based on our current obsession - one year I'll get him My Little Ponies, the next he'll get me a Ken doll in the form of an action figure of wrestler Ken Shamrock.

 

This year it was a short stack of Barbie novels with personal annotations written in the margins. They pointed out logical fallacies, implications for the larger Barbie-verse, or were just plain old filthy jokes.

 

The annotations made this book worth it, otherwise this story of Ro, the little blonde orphan girl washed up on an island and befriended by a red panda, a peacock and even a baby elephant was a bit too saccharine and convenient. Someone, somewhere wrote that their biggest problem with Disney was the idea that stories end with weddings rather than begin with them. Sometimes that trope works, but literarily this whole story was just about getting married, the reveal of Ro's parents was given no emotional weight. It's weird.

 

A highlight was the evil villain, with a surprisingly thorough and specific backstory and decent plans, who was a much more well-developed character than our heroes.

 

But, because weddings are the. most. important thing. I'll be ending each of these reviews with a wedding doll, because I fricken have that many now.

 

 

A groovy, talking PJ still rocking her pigtails in 'Bridal Brocade' from 1971.
