Withers acted everything, from brazen murderesses to Lady Bracknell, as well as a broad range of everyman characters, such as blonde nitwits, wartime Resistance workers, lady farmers, and Shakespearean women. McCallum not only performed memorably in all the acting media, but he was also a pioneer producer in Australian television, sending the popular series Skippy the Bush Kangaroo into the far corners of the world. He was also the managing director of a huge theatrical firm, a film director, a playwright, and an author. Just as remarkable was their 62-year marriage, not all that common in the entertainment world, and the way their marriage succeeded is as fascinating as their varied and prolific careers. There were plenty of disagreements along the way, but underlying all was their profound respect for each other's work and a kind of love that was essentially complementary. Together, in professional and personal matters alike, Googie Withers and John McCallum were an unbeatable combination Notes: Includes bibliographical references (pages 211-229) and index Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1.Googie -- 2.John -- 3.John and Googie and Joanna Godden -- 4.A very busy couple -- 5.Heading south -- 6.Interlude -- 7.Going south -- and staying there (more or less) -- 8.New directions -- 9.Small screens and large stages -- 10.Commuting -- 11.Winding up More info
