Publisher's Summary

Ever since Debbie Reynolds won a Miss Burbank beauty contest and a Warner Brothers screen test, her fans have identified with her and called her "the kid" - the kid sister, the kid with personality, the kid with guts. Throughout her career she has embodied fresh-faced American grace and gumption in such classic films as Singing' in the Rain, How the West was Won, Tammy and the Bachelor, and The Unsinkable Molly Brown. In this frank and witty autobiography, Debbie Reynolds shares her vivid memories of her public and private life: her widely publicized and turbulent marriages to Eddie Fisher and businessman Harry Karl; her experiences with other stars like Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Bette Davis, Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford, Robert Wagner, Fred Astaire; her hard-won and enduring relationship with her son, Todd Fisher, and daughter, actress Carrie Fisher; and the fabulous success of her later career in nightclubs, television, and theater. This recording is a unique documentary - the story of Golden Age of Hollywood from the perspective of a survivor, an act of courage from a woman whose screen performances have touched us all.

The parts were good but jumped all over the place.
