Description by OLDIES.com:

Jack Lemmon (1925-2001) was one of our most beloved movie stars, appearing in dozens of memorable films including such classics as Some Like It Hot, The Odd Couple, and The China Syndrome, he was a two-time Academy Award winner for Mister Roberts and Save the Tiger.

In A Twist of Lemmon, Chris Lemmon shares family tales, intimate father-son conversations, and anecdotes from and about his dad. The result is a vivid and enchanting portrait of a less-than-perfect father who in some ways assumed a greater reality for his fans than he did for his son. Chris writes about the friendship that evolved as they came to share their passions for both music and golf. This very personal portrait provides new insight into a man who charmed millions with his rascal's smile and his very human vulnerability.

Joining Chris are first-person tributes from Blake Edwards, Andy Garcia, Julie Andrews, Tony Curtis, Neil Simon, Shirley MacLaine, and Cliff Roberts, among others.
