One of my favorite movies is Fat City which I feel has never received proper recognition as a real movie masterpiece, so that is why I wanted to listen to this book. It was a true delight. I did not know about Keach's extensive stage career or his classical training. Now I wish I could see him on stage in King Lear. There is no self pity or whining in this book. He is frank about bad choices he made, but the overall picture is of an actor who has enjoyed his profession to the fullest. I would bet that his career has been more fulfilling due to his desire to embrace all opportunities to work than many others who are bitter about not becoming big stars.

Would you listen to All in All again? Why?
Keach's childhood struggles and Broadway tales alone make this earnest and entertaining memoir worthy of one's time, never mind the stories including Gregory Peck, Orson Welles, John Huston, Rod Steiger and Laurence Olivier, among other legends! And, regarding the origins of the pencil test...I'm speechless. Highly recommended to anybody who enjoys reading about acting, movies, the arts, Hollywood lore, etc. The best part is when you have this stage star offer his insight on playing Hamlet, King Lear, Richard the III, Macbeth, and some of the other well-known characters that sprung from the mind of that Brit genius. And it's all told in probably the best voice for an audiobook one could hope for. A gem!
