The close professional relationship between
Jack Klugman and Tony Randall has long been famous, but the details of
their personal friendship have never been revealed until now. In Tony
and Me by Jack Klugman with Burton Rocks the depth of this friendship is
fully explored and touchingly revealed for the very first time. In his
tribute, Klugman provides the ultimate insider’s view of a relationship
that went well beyond what the public saw in The Odd Couple.
Tony and Me follows both actors from their early days of stage and television to the “Camelot” of The Odd Couple; from Klugman’s fight with invasive throat cancer to Randall’s struggle to open a National Actors Theatre. What emerges is a touching portrait of a legendary professional relationship that, in the end, became deeply personal. Tony and Me also has a foreword by Garry Marshall and includes over fifty photographs, many from Jack and Tony’s private collection, as well as an included DVD of never-before-seen out takes from The Odd Couple. This final component makes Tony and Me a great experience not only for diehard fans and history buffs, but for anyone in search of a good laugh.
