Sweetheart Leslie Caron surprises you with her sometimes self indulgent life in the movies. One forget the number of good films she made with leading actors in Hollywood and more. Light and easy read.
A lighthearted account of the actress, Judi Dench, throughout the years in film, television, and especially, theater. You can hear her voice when you read the pages and her anecdotes about, with and by close friends. One will continue to admire this veteran and skilled actress.
Enjoyed the first half of the book, especially, about the original Dick Van Dyke show...chapters transition nicely, but the book should have had an equally strong finish and description about Diagnosis for Murder, an even longer series for Mr Van Dyke.
This book only covers the first half of Julie Andrews career which includes some surprising personal family stories and a decent insight to the My Fair Lady Broadway and West End runs; otherwise the anecdotes are a bit trivial.
Even later in life, one can discover a great read like this one by Theodore Dreiser. Noted again on a recent 100 must read list, I recommend spending the time on this novel.
