A Hundred Different Lives


by Raymond Massey. Little, Brown, $13.95. The second volume of Mr. Massey’s autobiography is less varied than the first, since it naturally sticks to the theater where he made his distinguished career, but it has the same attractive qualities of warmth, intelligence, and humor. It is also well populated by colleagues such as Ruth Gordon and Humphrey Bogart, and provides unexpected information, such as how to combine long trousers and half Wellingtons. There is no telling when that sort of knowledge will come in handy. Mr. Massey once used it to get the governor general of Canada “into his pants.” Illustrations.
