Description

You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me is a biography of beloved American movie actor Dick Miller. Miller's fantastically storied life, the legendary people with whom he has worked and played, the times in which he's lived and the fascinating environments of both Broadway and Hollywood over the past seventy years are all thoroughly and engagingly explored in this first and only biography of the cult legend. The result of both extensive interviews and exhaustive research, You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me is at once story of how an unassuming guy stumbled into acting and became cult royalty, an epic love story of a man and his wife, a parallel story of an actor and his director (Corman), and a secret history of Hollywood. Referred to by Roger Corman as the "best actor in Hollywood" a favourite character actor of Quentin Tarantino, and in the words of Jonathan Demme, "a first-rate actor who makes any scene he's in better," Miller's particular magic continues to work itself on Hollywood elite and movie buffs alike.

Editorial Review

Well, it's about time! One of the most recognizable faces in movies has never had his full story told the way it is in You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me! It's a well-researched play-by-play of Dick Miller's long and varied career as an actor, writer, husband and friend to fledging directors (like I was when we met). No matter how big a fan you think you are, there's stuff in here you never knew!" - Joe Dante
