Dust jacket reads: "The 'Land of Oz' has just one Wizard; the realm of show business has many. They range from Disney, Ziegfeld, De Mule, Griffith, and Hammerstein in the past-to Spielberg, Lucas, Cameron, Ron Howard and the myriad of other young, budding Wizards whose numbers compound daily. And as the reigning powers in Hollywood-our modern Land of Oz-they relentlessly drive themselves to outdo each other as they create that glittering, captivating magic called entertainment." 'Audiences see this realm from one aspect. Here's how it looks from the other side." So begins the fascinating account of a man who has seen it all-Buddy Ebsen. Surprisingly, Buddy never intended to be an actor. His goal in life was to be a doctor. After completing pre-med studies at the University of Florida and Rollins College, the Florida land boom collapsed, affecting Buddy's financial ability to continue his studies. As a dancing teacher, Ebsen's father taught all of his children that trade. In August 1928, Buddy went to New York to try his hand at show business. In addition to acting and dancing on stage, screen, and television, Mr. Ebsen has produced and directed, written songs and plays, and currently displays his talents through oil painting. His works have been shown at galleries in California and Hawaii. --------Edition: First edition
