Description
"A dazzling performance....An incisive, hilarious study of Hollywood folkways."

--Wall Street Journal

The tell-all memoir of all tell-all memoirs, Me Cheeta is the unexpurgated true life story of the granddaddy of all Hollywood animals, Cheeta the Chimp, star of the Tarzan films. The Washington Post calls this insider's tale from the Golden Age of the Silver Screen, "Hilarious, catty, melancholy and, occasionally, deep," and it was nominated for Great Britain's prestigious Man Booker Prize (though Chimp Booker Prize would be more appropriate). As told to James Lever, Me Cheeta is one ape's story of his on-and-off screen interactions with the likes of Johnny Weissmuller, Maureen O'Sullivan, Rex Harrison, and Bela Lugosi. Tinkerbell, Paris Hilton's dog, had her literary day, as did Socks the First Cat. Now it's Cheeta's turn!

display_descriptionFictional autobiography of the chimpanzee who supposedly played opposite Johnny Weissmuller in Tarzan films, Ronald Reagan in Bedtime for Bonzo, and Rex Harrison in Dr. Doolittle, and survives to paint in retirement in Palm Springs. (Research has established that the chimp's first owner was known to be a teller of tall tales and that this chimp was not one of the many different chimps that were used in those films.)
