Barry Morse is probably familiar to many as the infamous Lt. Gerard from the classic Fugitive TV series. But I first knew him as Professor Victor Bergman on the short-lived Space: 1999. He was a very accomplished actor with a dry wit, and this book is a collection of anecdotes from his career. It's very enjoyable reading. One of my favorite quotes is from a discussion Morse had with the producer of Space: 1999, Gerry Anderson. Morse was concerned that Anderson was becoming too obsessed with big-budget special effects and wasn't focusing on character development, which Morse felt (rightly) was what made a show entertaining to an audience. His brief caution to Anderson: "Drama is about chaps." His words are still meaningful in this age of blockbuster effects movies.

This is an extremely engaging and I would say thrilling book. It is also incredibly personal and honest. Beginning with his early cockney roots the reader becomes totally immersed in his vivid descriptions of London in the first part of the 20th century. His audition for a drama scholarship is portrayed as vividly as if it happened yesterday. Throughout his accounts of his his many dramatic accomplishments and innovations we see a man who is utterly dedicated to gettting the most from any role or task he takes on. He is ambitious but at the same very modest and very generous to his colleagues. In a world where people are begininning to see the errors of endless pursuit for profit Barry gives a very good role model of someone who is courageous and ambitious and yet lacking in any sort of inflated ego or greed.
The book has a great deal to tell about the development of theatre and television in the UK and Canada, and anyone who is interested in the performing arts will find a lot of useful information, reflection and humour.
Highly recommended

"Remember with Advantages" is a remarkable book about an amazing actor.
Reading this book I feel I've come to know Barry Morse and I'm a great
admirer not only of his talent as an actor, but also of his value as a
human being. Throughout this book you see that he has been a selfless
champion of varied charities and causes over the years - Parkinson's
disease, the Samaritans, and the PAL retirement home for actors, among
others. I was very touched by the story of his "adoption" of a young
impoverished Mexican boy while he was working on a film in that country
- read it for yourself, but Mr. Morse and his wife took this boy and
his family under their wings and provided a level of financial support
which enabled the boy to go through all of his schooling and to finally
be able to lead a successful life. It's a heart-felt story, and just
one of the inspirational moments in this memoir. On the professional
side, his stories of working on series like "The Fugitive" which I
remember well and "Space: 1999" - are varied and always feature
interesting anecdotes. Some stars are mentioned only in passing, such
as Katharine Hepburn - but what fun little stories all of them are! All
in all, this is about as close to a true "page-turner" as you can get,
and I loved finding each new adventure awaiting me. This is the best
book of an actor's memoirs that I've ever read, and I recommend it
completely!

Mr. Morse, best known in the U.S. as Lt. Gerard from the "The Fugitive", had varied career along before fame found him in the Fugitive. Mr. Morse spins colorful tales of a masterful actor's career which includes many notable actors of the stage and screen. A truly interesting and worthwhile read.
Kardana
Mr. Morse's spins great tales of his experiences in the theater. It was an enjoyable read.
Barry Morse is best known in the U.S. as Inspector Girard on TV's "The Fugitive." But this is the least of his credits in a long, varied and productive career in Canada, America, Great Britain and the Continent. Had he worked harder to get his facts straight, edited out all his redundancies and sententious philosophical digressions, he would have written an autobiography more reflective of his immense joie de vivre and puckish humor.
