Riassunto: A Funny Thing Happened is a humorous romp through the Golden Age of Hollywood and Broadway by a man who worked with the brightest stars of those years. From working with Mel Brooks, when Mel was just trying to break into show business, to his days writing for The Today Show with a 25-year-old Florence Henderson, to his time with Frank Sinatra, Joan Rivers, Jerry Lewis and more, this book has laughs and smiles to spare. Includes nearly forty pictures, including four previously unreleased photos of The Beatles and very rare images of Frank Sinatra, Red Buttons, Dolly Parton and more. Lester tells the stories of his life, his ups and downs, successes, triumphs and failures with an optimistic, friendly tone. Reading this book is like listening to your favorite grandfather telling his favorite tales.
L'autore: After leaving the Navy after World War II, Lester Colodny decided to make his living in show business. Even through he never became as famous as some other people in the business, he did get to lead a life with the greatest stars of the age. He even won an EMMY for his work on The Baja Marimba Band! Lester wrote for Get Smart, Love, American Style, worked on My Favorite Martian, co-wrote Fun City with Joan Rivers and was one of the co-creators of The Munsters. Later, Lester went into work in advertising, working for Steve Wynn's casino chains, for which he won several CLEO awards. He ended his career working for a well-known NYC real estate mogul. Today, Lester is an eighty-five-year-old grandfather of twelve, including Elizabeth Hendrickson, former star of All My Children and current star of The Young and the Restless.
