Debbie Reynolds was there....
This unusual book is a tale of two halves, first it is the story of Debbie's singlehanded attempts to save and share the treasured artefacts of the glory days of the Hollywood Musical. A task that despite applying untold time and money to over 40 years, it seems that even with her genuine emotional commitment, she was unable to fully pull off. Although, it may be that the values accorded to each article when she was finally forced to auction them, is proof thatcher endeavour was not a wasted one, these mementos may currently be dispersed, but they are saved and they are valued...
Then it becomes a movie by movie series of gentle and not so gentle anecdotes, recalling the times and the people, mostly well known to us all even now, that Debbie had the pleasure (or not) of working with. And like I said, she was there.. This is the real dish, and she has no need to curry favour with anyone, and no desire to dish the dirt for its own sake either. A great balance. I liked the book, but I loved Debbie. Thanks for the memories.
