Thursday, February 27, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Richard Chamberlain, Actor; Author, Shattered Love: A Memoir
In conversation with Dr. Mary Bitterman, Past Chair, The Commonwealth Club Board of Governors; President, The Bernard Osher Foundation
Richard Chamberlain has starred in some of the most watched productions in the history of television, including “Shogun” and “The Thornbirds,” and he starred as the original Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity. Chamberlain rose to fame as television's Dr. James Kildare and then took on the role of Hamlet on the English stage.
Even as he won the adoration of millions of fans, Chamberlain seriously questioned his own self–worth, living a life haunted by personal insecurity despite decades of immense popular success. Don’t miss this chance to hear his stories of encounters with legendary Hollywood stars, including Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson and Katharine Hepburn, as well as how he has come to terms with his own imperfections, and the lessons he has learned about overcoming self–imposed obstacles to happiness.
