Wild's Widow Will Finish His Autobiography

Oscar-nominated actor JACK WILD's widow has vowed to finish the autobiography the OLIVER! actor started before his death. Wild - who played the ARTFUL DODGER in the 1968 movie - died last month (MAR06) aged 53 after a battle with mouth cancer, leaving his memoirs incomplete. But CLAIRE is determined to keep working on it - and promises it will be packed with tales of Wild's time in Hollywood. She says, "I'm going to finish his autobiography. Jack wanted to call the book IT'S A DODGER'S LIFE because his career was rather about ducking and weaving. "I interviewed him so often for the book, wanting to know what it's like to be a child star, why he passed up the chance to sing with FRANK SINATRA and what it felt like to meet his hero, JOHN WAYNE."

Is there any recent news on when/if Jack's bio will be published? This story is four years old and I haven't heard anything new in the last little while. Thanks.

Could someone answer this message to let me know if Jack's autobiography "it's a Dodgers Life" is finished and available or information on how I can find out? I'm a life long fan of his and found out recently about his death. Stay Wild
