The path of the actor by Michael Chekhov( Book )

12 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Chekhov, nephew of Anton Chekhov, was arguably one of the greatest actors of the twentieth century. From his time as Stanislavsky's pupil, followed by his artistic leadership in the Second Moscow Art Academic Theatre, his enforced emigration from the Soviet Union and long pilgrimage around Europe, to his work in Hollywood, his life has made a huge impact on the acting profession. Chekhov's remarkable actor-training techniques inspired many Hollywood legends - including Anthony Hopkins and Jack Nicholson - and his techniques remain one of the theatre's best kept secrets." "This first English translation of Chekhov's extraordinary autobiographies combines The Path of the Actor, from 1928, and extensive extracts from his later Life and Encounters. Full of humorous and insightful observations involving prominent characters from Moscow and the European theatre of the early twentieth century, Chekhov takes us through events in his acting career and personal life, from his childhood in St. Petersburg until his emigration from Latvia and Lithuania in the early 1930s." "Chekhov's witty, penetrating (and at times immensely touching) accounts have been edited by Andrei Kirillov, whose extensive and authoritative notes accompany the autobiographies. Co-editor, Anglo-Russian trained actor, Bella Merlin, also provides a useful hands-on overview of how the contemporary practitioner might use and develop Chekhov's ideas."--Jacket
