Let’s try this again!  It seems that there was something wrong with the comment section on the first blog post announcement…

It’s time for our next book giveaway. CMH will be giving away FOUR copies of I Only Know Who I Am When I Am Somebody Else: My Life on the Street, On the Stage, and in the Movies by actor Danny Aiello, courtesy of Gallery Books, via TWITTER from May 2 through May 28.

In order to qualify to win one of these prizes via this contest giveaway, you must complete the below entry task by Saturday, May 28 at 10PM EST. However, the sooner you enter, the better chance you have of winning, because we will pick a winner on four different days within the contest period, via random drawings, as listed below… So if you don’t win the first week that you enter, you will still be eligible to win during the following weeks until the contest is over.

About the Book: In a raw and real chronicle of his gritty urban past, Danny Aiello looks back with appreciation, amusement, and frank disbelief at his unconventional road to success. He offers candid observations on working with luminary directors Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen, and Robert Altman, among others, and a vast roster of actors, including Robert De Niro, Paul Newman, Madonna, Cher, and Lauren Bacall. He opens up about friends he loved, friends he lost, and the professional relationships that weren’t meant to be. Above all, Danny Aiello imparts a life lesson straight out of his own experience to anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider: It’s never too late to become who you want to be, to find happiness and fulfillment, and to embrace the winding road to get there.

    Entered on behalf of Sara who couldn’t post here: “Moonstruck” definitely comes to mind, but I have to say my favorite performance isn’t from a movie. Papa Don’t Preach, by Madonna, is my favorite performance. Strong and emotional, made me cry

    Danny Aiello’s character in “Jacob’s ladder” is a small part but he stands out
    in this horror movie.

  6. Chris Teel says:

    I would pick Leon: The Professional for two reasons. First, he does an excellent job of starting out as Leon’s friend and becoming less trustworthy as the film progresses. I truly wanted him to do the right thing (pun intended). Secondly, this is one of my son’s favorites, even before he had a crush on Natalie Portman.

  7. Jill Pearson says:

    I adore Danny. I suppose “Moonstruck” is my favorite film of his. I also enjoyed seeing him on “Centerstage” on the YES Network when I lived in NY, being interviewed by his nephew, Michael Kay. Looking forward to reading his book!

  8. I really enjoyed Danny Aiello’s work with Suzanne Pleshette in Alone in the Neon Jungle. He played her boss and was tough but kind.

  9. Francie Ryl says:

    I loved Danny as the momma’s boy in Moonstruck. He was delightful and funny.
