Making It Big In The Movies By Richard Kiel

By: Anders Frejdh
Making it big to the movies hardcover
Publication of the hardback edition of Making it BIG in the Movies - the autobiography of Richard "Jaws" Kiel

As the notorious "Jaws," Richard Kiel took on James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). A startling and unusual villian, Jaws proved to be so popular on his first appearance that the character returned for a second tilt at 007 in Moonraker (1979) (1979) — turning into a hero in the process.

Although he is most famous as James Bond's nemesis, Richard Kiel is an accomplished actor, writer, and producer, and has worked in almost every aspect of the movie business. In this revealing autobiography he tells the story of his career from his early extra, prop, and stunt work, through his TV roles in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1965), The Wild Wild West (1965-1968), The Monkees (1967) and other classic series, as well as films as varied as The Nutty Professor (1963), Silver Streak (1976), and Pale Rider (1985).
