The New Confessions

Серия: "-"

The New Confessions is the outrageous, extraordinary, hilarious and heartbreaking autobiography of John James Todd, a Scotsman born in 1899 and one of the great self-appointed (and failed) geniuses of the twentieth century. An often magnificent feat of story-telling and panoramic reconstruction... John James Todd's reminiscences carry us through the ups and downs of a long and lively career that begins in genteel Edinburgh, devastatingly detours out to the Western Front, forks off, after a period of cosy family life in London, to the electric excitements of the Berlin film-world of the Twenties, then moves on to Hollywood... to ordeal by McCarthyism and eventual escape to Europe - Peter Kemp, Observer.

Boyd, William

▪ American actor
born June 5, 1898, Hendrysburg, Ohio, U.S.
died Sept. 12, 1972, Hollywood
 American motion-picture and television actor who was best known for his portrayal of Hopalong Cassidy in a series of western films.

      Although born in Ohio, he grew up (from the age of 7) in Oklahoma and attended school only until he was 13. Thereafter, he held many odd jobs until, at the age of 20, he set out for California. Boyd began his film career in 1918 with a role in Cecil B. deMille's Old Wives for New, and he appeared throughout the 1920s in films made by deMille. He first played the role of the cowboy hero in 1935 in the film Hopalong Cassidy. With his tall stature and white hair, Boyd was a distinctive figure; wearing a black hat and costume and riding a white horse, he quickly became identified by the public with the screen hero. He played the role in subsequent films until the late 1940s and then reenacted it for a television series, also called Hopalong Cassidy (1952–54).
