Product Description:

Had enough Britney-Lindsay-Paris-Nicole? Here's a book about a real celebrity. and one you probably never heard of! Gordon 'Whitey' Mitchell has been at the heart of show business as a top jazz musician/studio player, then, in a mid-life career change, a successful Hollywood screenwriter with movies, pilots, and hundreds of sitcoms like GET SMART, ALL IN THE FAMILY, and THE JEFFERSONS to his credit. He's laughed, scratched and stumbled his way through both careers and rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in the business. still managing to remain completely anonymous! Here's what some high profile people he's worked with have to say: NORMAN LEAR: (Producer-Writer) "I'd have to say this is a very entertaining book. even if he didn't mention my name fourteen times." ANDRE PREVIN: (Composer-Conductor-Pianist) "Whitey Mitchell is a fine bass player. He plays in tune, keeps immaculate time and knows the bridge to SOPHISTICATED LADY. He is also a writer who tells his stories with wit and style. His book is a pleasure to read." MORT LACHMAN: (Bob Hope's Producer-Writer) "Whitey Mitchell is an extraordinary musician and a brilliant writer. But what he doesn't realize is that he's a magician. His life is magic. I read HACKENSACK TO HOLLYWOOD in one engrossing night. Couldn't put it down." BILL ASHER: (Producer-Director, I LOVE LUCY, BEWITCHED) "If I'd known that Whitey Mitchell was this funny, I would have given him more scripts to write."
