FROM HOLLYWOOD TO MICHAEL DANTE WAY (paperback)
My journey ‘From Hollywood to Michael Dante Way’ has been a long and winding road. I share my experiences in this book as I dreamed and struggled to reach my goals. With luck, good timing and divine guidance most of my dreams did come true. I lived, worked and was a part of an electrifying period in Hollywood’s history with many great and talented people who enriched my life. I hope my journey so far, inspires you to reflect on your own ambitions with the same appreciation for success as I have.
“Michael Dante is that rare and laudable professional athlete that doesn’t need physical prowess or prior fame to achieve success in motion pictures. His acting stands and shines on its own. He never falls back on a familiar, successful personality, but inhabits the unique personality of each of the many varied characters he portrays – and does so with commitment, truth and excellence. His life, his art, is well worth perusing.”
Don Murray – Academy Award & Emmy Award honored actor/writer/director
“Never have I worked with an actor so well prepared. His Winterhawk was extraordinary, not only his performance, his horsemanship was magnificent. His character was a visual wonder. Michael is a lovely man as well and a joy to share his screen.”
Dawn Wells – Actress, producer and philanthropist
“When I think of ideal role models for Americans of all ages, one figure stands tall, both figuratively and literally—that individual is my friend and great patriot, Michael Dante. Michael has earned international and national recognition and respect as a talented TV and film star, radio talk show host, entertainment personality and professional baseball player. As an all-around versatile athlete, he was able to participate in countless sporting events to raise funds for charitable causes. What you see is what you get. Strong, handsome, honest and humble in his beliefs and deeds, a true “straight shooter” in the vernacular of Western American lore; a man who has excelled in all his endeavors. You can always count on Michael as a friend and industry representative to stand up to what is right and just. Michael is a man of integrity and action as the reader will appreciate throughout his book.”
John Bianchi – American Legend, 50 Years of Gunleather, Retired Army Major General
“When I came to Hollywood, Michael was my first friend. I thoroughly enjoyed his company. I loved sports and we talked a lot about baseball. I love movies too and I’m so proud of Michael’s accomplishments in the movie and television industry. I was always impressed with his intelligence and versatile talent; Michael has had a magnificent life. I’ll be waiting by the mailbox for a copy of his book.”
