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.

You got to love Debbie!

Would you listen to Debbie: My Life again? Why?

I have!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Debbie: My Life?

Her to be second husband gives here a diamond pin in the shape of a swanjust because they are going to the ballet....but, of course, later steals all her money.t.

What does Debbie Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Debbie is sitting there telling you this story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Elizabeth did Debbie a favor.

Any additional comments?

Just a really good read. I read a lot of political non-fiction and needed the change.This book is just good for your soul.

Told like only Debbie Reynolds could do!

The story was told by Debbie, herself. It was as if she was sitting here chatting away telling her life's story in a very personal way. Her description of happenings gives the listener the opportunity to use your imagination and can picture it all!! Such a talented lady that had quite a sad life when it came to love.

Abridged Too Far

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The whole book.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The parts were good but jumped all over the place.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

None stand out as they noticeably cut from one period to another.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Debbie: My Life?

Perhaps the whole book in two parts or just the whole book.

Any additional comments?

Look forward to the unabridged version,
