Still Me - hardcover

Hardcover, [EAN: 9780754012894], Chivers Large print (Chivers, Windsor, Paragon & C, Chivers Large print (Chivers, Windsor, Paragon & C, Book, [PU: Chivers Large print (Chivers, Windsor, Paragon & C], Chivers Large print (Chivers, Windsor, Paragon & C, Christopher Reeve has beaten the odds before. He scored his first role in a Euripides play at 15, costarred with Katharine Hepburn at 22, and was one of two advanced-program students accepted at Juilliard, to which 2,000 drama students annually apply. (The other advanced student became his best friend, Robin Williams.) Reeve rode a sailplane to 32,000 feet over Pikes Peak, fell 90 feet from a parasail harness into four feet of water and walked away. He survived emergency appendectomy, malaria in Kenya, and the disastrous film Changing Channels, with Burt Reynolds. He flew vintage airplanes upside down. On his first solo transatlantic flight, a radar controller informed him he was about to run out of gas 200 miles west of Iceland. The radar controller had misread his screen, and Reeve landed safely. Then, in 1995, his horse balked at a 3-foot-3-inch racecourse fence, made an abrupt "dirty stop," Reeve's hands got tangled in the reins, he landed on his head and got a "hangman's injury"--a broken neck. Ace paramedics got oxygen to him 60 seconds before brain damage set in, and a helicopter named Pegasus lofted him to a hospital. Reeve was already important. His interpretation of Superman was classic, and his starring role in The Bostonians launched the Merchant/Ivory school of filmmaking. But it was not until his paralysis that Reeve really got moving as a public figure of the first rank. As his memoir Still Me details, since the accident, Reeve has directed his first film, started the Christopher Reeve Foundation to fund spinal-cord-repair research, lobbied Congress, and crisscrossed the country on speaking engagements. Says Reeve, "Lindbergh made it across the Atlantic [where he was feted by Reeve's grandma]; Houdini got out of those straitjackets; with enough money and grass-roots support, why shouldn't I be able to get out of this wheelchair?" Part Hollywood reminiscence, part scientific detective story, and part soapbox speech, Still Me explains the tantalizing but quite real possiblity that Reeve (and a quarter-million other paralyzed people, plus 49 million disabled Americans) may get back on their feet. Bobby Kennedy once tried to bolster Reeve's faith by saying, "Just fake it till you make it. The prayers will seem phony, but one day they'll become real." Christopher Reeve has more than a prayer, he has a program. He ain't fake, and he just might make it, leading a cast of millions. --Tim Appelo, 935022, Entertainers, 934988, Arts & Literature, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 941626, Movies, 941628, Adaptations, 941630, Amateur Production, 941632, Biographies, 941638, Cinematography, 941640, Direction & Production, 196409011, Documentaries, 941668, Encyclopedias, 196410011, Genre Films, 941644, Guides & Reviews, 941646, History & Criticism, 941648, Industry, 941650, Reference, 941652, Screenplays, 941654, Screenwriting, 196411011, Theory, 941656, Video, 941378, Humour & Entertainment, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
