About the Author

Michael B. Druxman is a veteran Hollywood screenwriter whose credits include CHEYENNE WARRIOR with Kelly Preston; DILLINGER AND CAPONE starring Martin Sheen and F. Murray Abraham; and THE DOORWAY with Roy Scheider, which he also directed. He is also a prolific playwright, his one-person play, JOLSON, having had numerous productions around the country. Other produced stage credits include one-person plays about Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Spencer Tracy and Orson Welles. Additionally, Mr. Druxman is the author of thirteen other published books, including several nonfiction works about Hollywood, its movies, and the people who make them (e.g., BASIL RATHBONE: His Life and His Films, MAKE IT AGAIN, SAM: A Survey of Movie Remakes, ONE GOOD FILM DESERVES ANOTHER: A Survey of Movie Sequels, MERV [Griffin] and THE MUSICAL: From Broadway to Hollywood). He has written two novels, NOBODY DROWNS IN MINERAL LAKE and SHADOW WATCHER, plus the humorous revisionist history, ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD: From the Secret Files of Harry Pennypacker, and FAMILY SECRET, a non-fiction book co-authored with Warren Hull, which reveals the true facts behind the 1947 murder of mobster “Bugsy” Siegel in Beverly Hills. An acknowledged Hollywood historian, he has also written television documentaries and has been interviewed for various retrospective featurettes that have accompanied DVD releases of classic films (e.g. THE MALTESE FALCON, etc.). Mr. Druxman is a former Hollywood publicist of 35 years experience who has represented many film and television stars, as well as noted directors, producers and composers. One of his Academy Award campaigns is often mentioned in books dealing with Oscar’s history. He has taught various dramatic writing and film appreciation courses in an adult university and is the author of How to Write a Story…Any Story: THE ART OF STORYTELLING, which has been used as a text in several colleges. A native of Seattle who graduated from Garfield High School and the University of Washington, Mr. Druxman moved with his wife, Sandy, from Los Angeles to Austin, TX in 2009. His memoir, MY FORTY-FIVE YEARS IN HOLLYWOOD AND HOW I ESCAPED ALIVE, is published by Bear Manor Media.

More About the Author

I was born in Seattle, WA, graduated from Garfield High School and the University of Washington.

In 1963, I moved to Los Angeles, eventually opening my own entertainment public relations business. I began writing professionally in the 1970s, starting with books about movies and movie stars, and then graduated to stage plays, screenplays and novels. I've directed for both stage and screen, and also taught several college-level writing courses.

In 2009, my wife and I moved to Austin, TX, and in 2010, my memoir, MY FORTY-FIVE YEARS IN HOLLYWOOD AND HOW I ESCAPED ALIVE was published by BearManor Media. My second memoir, LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HOLLYWOOD, was published by BearManor in 2013.

My motto: Take all viable opportunities that come your way, because you never know where they will lead.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
The great Orson Welles, the genius of film also of stage and radio and TV;"the magnificent Welles" has become a fabulous 2act - 1 person audio book play brought to us by the gifted writer Michael Druxman
The voice of the narrator is Edward French but he sounds like Welles. As the play moves on it is hard to tell what words belong to Druxman and what is Welles and French's voice becomes Welles' voice. So it is very much like listening to Welles speaking directly to me. By the end of the 'book or play or whatever' I think I know more about the man and understand a little more of the why...(perhaps Welles needed to develop his post-production skills or just not take vacations.)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an informative and touching monologue of one of the great geniuses of film.A wonderful
venue for an actor and a fascinating read for the layman and theater/movie person alike. Mr. Druxman
has a keen wit and is sensitive to the inner and outer conflicts of the man he has portrayed here as
Orson Welles. Bravo!
