4 The Quality of Mercy

The Quality of Mercy, by Mercedes McCambridge

Category:  Biographies & autobiographies

Subject/Topic:  “This is not a typical Hollywood memoir.  It is a book of remarkable language and depth of perception, written by a born storyteller who happens to have a distinguished career in the movies, theater and radio.

“The enchanting three-dimensional heroes and villains who have peopled Mercedes McCambridge’s life seem ready to step off the page.  Adlai Stevenson, about who she said, “There are two kinds of people in the world – Adlai Stevenson and everyone else!” and the great Orson Welles, who said about her that she was “the world’s greatest living radio actress.”  Here is the tale of Mercy’s fixing up Rita Hayworth with a French waiter, passed off as a gentleman farmer….”.  From the book jacket.
