Be they actors, comedians, singers, dancers, or talk show hosts and personalities, everyone from George Burns and Milton Berle to Jack Benny and Jackie Gleason to Sid Caesar and Caesar Romero ignited their own particular brand of "man-erisms." In the process, they each inspired their audience to cheer them on--whatever their guise. This book, with a foreword by Adam "Batman" West, will explore and celebrate the men who invented manliness and became stars in the process. It also profiles such teenage heartthrobs as Leave it to Beaver's Tony Dow and The Partridge Family's David Cassidy, stars who left an indelible impression on a generation of young girls.
