Since I had no idea of Leonard's other works I have now watched some of the movies he has been in and read some of his poems. I will miss Spock and Leonard. Rest in Peace.
Only barely is I AM SPOCK an autobiography of Leonard Nimoy. He says a little about his childhood and his parents, he says something about his first years as an actor prior to STAR TREK in 1966, and he says a good deal about his acting and directing subsequent to STAR TREK's first three years. But he says little about his wife and his children. Nor does he say anything about something I learned of only from William Shatner's UP TIL NOW. Namely, his past troubles with alcoholism. And there is nothing about his activities, public or private, beyond 1994 (the book was published in 1995).
I was quite surprised to learn that Leonard Nimoy directed the successful comedy movie, THREE MEN AND A BABY. Another movie he directed, THE GOOD MOTHER, I had never heard of. It starred Oscar winners Liam Neeson and Diane Keaton, it had a bold theme regarding childhood exposure to parental sex, and it was a movie that Nimoy was proud of. But it played ghost at the box office, and hardly anyone saw it. Though I commend the description of it--particularly the anecdote regarding Keaton's acting--I am averse to seeing it. I prefer happy endings, and I think this one depresses. On the other hand, Nimoy starred in a TV movie, NEVER FORGET, which I think I WOULD like, if only it were available on DVD. It is the story of Mel Mermelstein who dared to defy the evil falsehoods proliferated by neo-Nazis of the Institute for Historical Review.
Especially STAR TREK fans should appreciate the abundance of firsthand information about STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES and original-series movies. Nimoy gives synopses of original-series episodes that had something noteworthy about them, and he gives an introspective examination of the development of Spock. Among other things, he describes why the original-series' third season deteriorated, he gives moderate coverage on the production of each of the first six movies, and he reminisces about STAR TREK conventions, troubles with zealous fans, and the impact of STAR TREK upon humanity. (At least for purposes of marketing STAR TREK movies, STAR TREK: GENERATIONS is not considered an original-series movie, despite the preeminence of Captain Kirk. But Nimoy/Spock was not in it, and in this book Nimoy explains his absence. As he does for the absence of DeForrest Kelley/Dr. McCoy.)
There are no photo plates, but maybe plates present problems regarding binding. Anyway, there are many PRINTED photos interspersed throughout to match the text and to provide readers with agreeable distractions. The helpful index has sub-entries.
The dust jacket touts this book as follows: "Now, in this long-awaited autobiography, Mr. Nimoy opens up to his fans in ways the Vulcan never could." I am afraid this has misled some buyers, but I am not going to fault the book because the dust jacket has a few misleading words. I did not even read the dust jacket until after I had read the book. The book's title suggested STAR TREK content relating to Leonard Nimoy. That is what I expected, that is what I got, and what I got satisfied me. Therefore, my rating is five stars.
I love reading memoirs about my favorite actors and actresses. Finding out all of these little tidbits that you never knew about them.
The ongoing dialog between Spock and Leonard throughout the book is classic. He would have these conversations between him and Spock. They were quite comical and I enjoyed them immensely.
Leonard Nimoy was a man of many talents. He not only starred in a lot of films and plays, he was a great director.
I think anyone that loves the Star Trek franchise, especially Spock, will love this book. I highly recommend!
Lived Long and Prospered!!!!!
RIP ~ Leonard Nimoy
Many things surprised me -- Roddenberry seems to have disappeared from Star Trek after the first two seasons, never reappearing, at least for Nimoy, as an artistic force for Star Trek. Unlike Takei, Nimoy only mentions Shatner's artistic megalomania once or twice, and seems to have managed not only to get along with him but actually to have liked him.
I always wondered why, after directing the astonishingly successful "Three Men and a Baby" that set box office records, Nimoy didn't go on to a major career as a Hollywood director. Perhaps it was the problematic "The Good Mother" that killed that.
The whole theme of Nimoy and Spock having dialogs didn't do much for me. I'm not sure that I believe that Spock was such a sustained and significant role in his career that Spock would be in his head.
Anybody who is interested in Star Trek and Spock should definitely read this -- at the price it's more than worth it.
