Copertina anteriore
Putnam, 1995 - 332 pagine
She was America's darling: actress, producer, star of the golden age of television. Her work on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" garnered multiple Emmys, followed by critical acclaim for her acting on Broadway and in film. Now, in her witty, candid, heartbreaking autobiography, Mary Tyler Moore tells all, about...the Dick Van Dyke nobody knows...Elvis, her sly, seductive co-star in "Change of Habit"...how Carl Reiner taught her to cry while being funny...Robert Redford's confession after casting her in "Ordinary People"...about then-First Lady Betty Ford's inebriated debut on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and years later, her phone call that saved Mary's life. Mary spares nothing as she recounts her traumatic childhood, two failed marriages, her own alcoholism, the tragic death of her son, and her third, happy marriage to a cardiologist eighteen years her junior. Moving, inspiring, and brutally frank, "After All" will touch every reader's heart and soul.
