    "How high are we?" Robert Mitchum asked. "Sixth floor? I guess that's safe." He took a sip of his Scotch. "You know," he said, "at high altitudes this stuff can kill you. Drinking in a place like Durango is a serious business. You got an altitude of five, six thousand feet, you can get drunk by accident. Get sick. Of course, that's one of the best ways to lose weight. Mitchum In His Own Words (Book): Mitchum, Robert: Mitchum's tales include beatings, hanging producers by their shoelaces, killings in Mexican bars and slapping Teutonic helmer Otto Preminger. And there are classic observations, such as his quip to Variety that 'the best producer is an absent one.' Mitchum editor Jerry Roberts conducted one of the interviews, and has done a terrific job.

    I’ve heard from many who believed that film actor Robert Mitchum was an alcoholic, anti-Semitic and racist monster. In our newest book, Beyond Columbo: The Life and Times of Peter Falk, Peter- who was Jewish, was intimidated by Mitchum when they both starred in the war film “Anzio” in On screen and off, Robert Mitchum was the face of film noir, the embodiment of its hard-bitten cynicism, self-destructive vices, and magnetic, inscrutable, preternatural cool. As a performer in such classic films as Out Of The Past, Night Of The Hunter, The Lusty Men, and Cape Fear, he resisted the ostentatious preening of other movie stars, underplaying roles more naturally served by his.

    In the book are several revelations. It claims that Joan had affairs when she was married to husband, Edgar Rosenberg. it discusses a claim that Joan made cheated on Edgar in the s with Robert Mitchum (?!), her feud with Johnny Carson, that she dated The Beach Boys Dennis Wilson, the suicide of Edgar after he put her in debt and much more. But for sheer old-fashioned cool—a sort of brooding languor, with the ever-present whiff of violence—it would be hard to beat Robert Charles Durman Mitchum, who was born in Bridgeport, Conn.
