Narrating his riveting memoir, beloved actor Dick Van Patten reflects on his prolific career, vibrant life, and the people who shaped both. From growing up during the Great Depression when poverty and racially biased ideologies dominated America, to witnessing the advent of television and its subsequent influence on culture, Dick Van Patten´s life is a rich record of change and progress in America and Hollywood. Perhaps best known for his role playing the mild mannered ´´every-dad´´ in 70s sitcom Eight Is Enough, Dick Van Patten has appeared in thousands of television, film, and radio roles viewed by millions of people; he commenced his career by lighting up the Great White Way as a child star alongside Broadway staples such as Tallulah Bankhead, Melvyn Douglas, Alfred Lunt, and Lynn Fontanne, early influences who fueled his relentless thirst for acting and stardom. Van Patten divulges anecdotes both amusing and emotional; among them, he chronicles throwing back drinks with notorious Hollywood producer Robert Evans, forming his family´s close friendship with pop icon Farrah Fawcett, rooming with the legendary Burt Lancaster, and living next door to the eccentric Michael Jackson. Eighty Is Not Enough provides a look back on the evolution of entertainment in a manner rarely glimpsed - straight from the man who experienced it all. 1. Language: English.

Fredric March (1897-1975) was one of the most dynamic and versatile actors of his time. On the screen, he created memorable performances in such classic films as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Death Takes a Holiday, Les Miserables, A Star Is Born, Nothing Sacred, One Foot in Heaven, The Adventures of Mark Twain, The Best Years of Our Lives, Death of a Salesman, and Inherit the Wind. Along the way, he was nominated five times for an Academy Award and won the coveted statuette twice. He had an equally distinguished career as a stage actor - appearing in such acclaimed Broadway productions as The Skin of Our Teeth and Long Day´s Journey Into Night - winning two Tony Awards - including the very first presented to an actor. Despite this great record of success, Fredric March isn´t as well remembered today as some of his peers (Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, James Stewart) because unlike them, he never developed a recognizable screen persona that followed him from film to film. He was always characterizing - always hiding his own personality behind that of the character he was portraying. He was the consummate actor who richly deserves to be rediscovered. 1.
