“Airwolf” Star Alex Cord Says He’ll Write The Story of His Life
Long Awaited Memoir From Movie Star and Author, Cord, To Be Released 2014
Prague— 15/05/14 — “Airwolf” star Alex Cord announced that he will write his memoir this year. Fans of Cord’s acting will learn about a life that most people wouldn’t even dare to dream. “I was born with a wild imagination, a conviction of the power of dreams, and a life-long passionate love for horses. Almost all of my dreams and fantasies have come true.” He says that when he thinks back on the bizarre events that have become his life, he sometimes wonders if they really did occur or did he just dream them.
He’ll reveal behind the scenes glimpses of working on “Airwolf” with Jan Michael Vincent and Ernest Borgnine. He’ll take you on the journey from being an uneducated bricklayer in New York to playing polo with Prince Charles and becoming Kirk Douglas’s brother in “The Brotherhood.”
Many of Cord’s fans have been asking for this memoir. Cord has written three novels already, and all have been well-received. “Writing about my life will cause me to think, to examine the enormous changes that have taken place in my heart and mind as I’ve ridden the wind. I am now a totally different man than I was years ago. I’d like to know more about how that came to be and share it with those who might find value in it.”
Alex Cord’s first experience as an actor was on stage in college, where he studied English Literature. “All the pretty girls were in the Dramatic Arts Department.” He spent a summer at the American Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Connecticut. He soon found himself in leading stage roles and later as a leading man in the movie industry, working and developing friendships with icons he had idolized while growing up. His films included the groundbreaking “Synanon,” the movie adaptation of Harold Robbins’ “Stiletto” and the lead in the much lauded 1966 remake of John Ford’s “Stagecoach,” playing the role that made John Wayne a star, The Ringo Kid.
In the 1970s, Cord penned his first novel “Sandsong.” He starred in countless TV shows and several films. It was, however, with the ’80s TV show “Airwolf” that Cord became most recognizable as the white-suited “Archangel.”
Alex Cord kept his visibility high until his retirement on a Texas ranch, with roles in many films and TV shows.
This highly-anticipated memoir will, for the first time, allow readers into the real stories behind “Airwolf,” Hollywood, the movie industry, and a complex, ever evolving Renaissance man.
