Leslie Nielsen has been a working actor for fifty years, appearing in over 130 feature films and 100 television shows. The acclaimed International box office star who made "Airplane!", "The Naked Gun" movies comedy classics, has written the ultimate showbiz autobiography.

 

Now the producers of the esteemed series "North American Masters" proudly bring his story to the screen. A story that for some will be just too hard to believe. It's a story about a man's inner struggle, his search to find the basic truths of life and the real price of fame. This is the story of Leslie Nielsen. Uncensored. Uninhibited. Unbelievable.

 

We follow Leslie's journey from the frozen Northwest Canadian Territory of his humble beginnings to the stratospheric heights of Hollywood stardom. We get a rare glimpse of his brief but distinguished career in a top secret military unit, his adventures at The Lorne Greene School of Radio Broadcasting and his groundbreaking work in the exciting early days in live television.

 

Here's Leslie as you've never imagined him...best buddy of screen legend James Dean, appearing in film classics, lover of countless gorgeous actresses, a true maker of his own Hollywood myth. Now, for the first time we take you inside the life of this intensely private man as he candidly shares with us his proudest moments, his greatest failures and the horror of a recurring nightmare that has haunted him for years.

 

From winning the coveted "Academy Award for Good Acting" to being cut out of David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia, Leslie's life has had more ups and downs than a broken roller coaster. Witness a film lavished with fabulous celebrity interviews, personal anecdotes, film clips and photographs you simply won't believe, ...even after you've seen them.

 

From his steamy affairs with Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly to his secret marriage to Michelle Pfeiffer, The Naked Truth is a hilarious, entertaining romp through five decades of show business, that sends up Hollywood producers, celebrities, divorce lawyers, sleazy agents, hot women, cold climates, psychoanalysts, real-estate agents, spiritual gurus, the military and the media. Step through the looking glass and uncover the real, the ultimate, the absolute, Naked Truth according to Leslie Nielsen.

Ma copie de ce livre est toute niquée tellement j'ai pleurer de rire en le lisant.

C'est un de mes livres de chevet en fait.

Par contre je ne vois absolument pas comment on peut en tirer un film vu qu'il n'y a pas d'histoire a proprement parler. Une adaptation qui sent déja le paté.
