Description

Helen Hayes had been on stage, screen, and television for more than fifty years. In that time she moved among the world's most famous and talented people. She speaks with wit, wisdom, and candor on topics both public and private, offering behind-the-scenes portraits of great personalities, telling of the advice older actors gave her and how she in turn gave advice. She treats us to delightful anecdotes about Ethel Barrymore, John Ford, and Al Capone, at the same time reflecting more seriously on the painful parts of her life.


Written just three years before her death and narrated by her son, James MacArthur, this is an engrossing account of a rich, productive life.
