5.0 out of 5 stars This should be on every actor's bookshelf..., August 16, 2003
This review is from: On Acting (Hardcover)
O.k., so I began reading "On Acting" by Laurence Olivier for a terribly silly reason: he's dreamy. By the end of the book, though, I realized that he was much more than just a pretty face: he was a voice, a mind, a legend, a human. This book is essential for the actor who wishes to delve deeper into his/her craft. Sir Laurence writes with clarity and conviction, and at times it's as if he's speaking the words right to YOU. This book allows you to peer behind the performance of many of Sir Laurence's favorite characters: Richard III, Henry V, Shylock...and if you've ever had the privalege to play Hamlet, this book brings to life all of the emotions the actor feels before, during, and after "Hamlet".
I could go on forever about how great this book is. It's amazing.
