He is funny and witty as well. There is a particular funny story about how when they were filming the MMC, the boys would be behind the girls in an ending to a dance and had to get extremely close to them. Most of the boys had their hormones raging...except for one. He says, "interestingly Dennis never had a problem with it." (He is referring to Mousketeer Dennis Day, who is gay).
He also does not mince words and is blatantly honest about the Mousketeers who he does not want anything to do with, namely, Bobby Burgess, Tommy Cole and Darlene Gillespie who he says had to be the center of attention all the time and how she and her father did some horrendously cruel things to Annette after it was obvious Annette became the undisputed Star of the show.
All in all, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read from a man who is definitely not one to sugar coat things but is a real, human being, good and bad. I loved the book and would,love to meet Lonnie someday!!
I happen to live in the surrounding area the author writes a lot about in his formative years, which helps me to maintain some interest. However, one soon gets the impression Burr is simply trying to show off his supreme knowledge of the English language. It's a real turn-off and I am glad others here have pointed it out.
I read two to three books per week. This could have been a very good book on the life of a kid who got lucky. But the author is just too interested in showing off his vocabulary rather than giving fans and admirers a book they can enjoy.
I would have loved to have been able to recommend this book but, unfortunately, I can't.
All the stars who attended Hollywod Professional School, where most of the kids in showbiz went before college. He is also a writer, poet, playwright, critic, book author etcetera. This is like a literary cliff hanger - what will happend in the next chapter?
