Format: Hardcover
Light, easy going biography focuses on the actress Agnes Moorehead as the author knew her, rather than on her life in general. The book consists of anecdotes from friends, fans and coworkers that focus mainly on Ms. Moorehead's deeply held religious beliefs and the many kindnesses she bestowed on others throughout her life. Those looking for controversy, deep dark secrets or skeletons in the closet will be disappointed, everyone else will find this short, to the point biography both entertaining and informative.

Format: Hardcover
The best part of this fascinating little book is the "tour" of the Miss Mooreheads house that the author provides. Dr. Sherk takes the reader into Ms. Moorehead's den and libraries and describes everthing from the rugs on the floor to the titles of books on the shelves. Also, he relates stores told by friends of Ms Moorehead which describe what a grand lady she must have been.
One word of warning, however. There are at least a couple of errors. One seems to be a misprint, the other gives credit to actor Tony Randall for having done a voice-over that was actually done by comedian Paul Lynde.

This book gives you a fascinating peek into the wonderful red-headed actor's life. This woman that is probably best known for playing Endora was a staunch Republican and a conservative Christian. She rubbed elbows with the greatest stars ever to walk on earth. She helped countless new actors and actresses behind the scenes. If you love Agnes Moorehead's acting, you will love this book.

I like Agnes Moorehead very much as a character actress and wanted to get a better insight into who she was in real life. Mr. Sherk gave a wonderful insight to the private ladys beliefs and ideas. She was deeply religious and very conservative. Became very frightened about the societal changes she was seeing in the 60 and 70s and feared our nation was losing its moral sense of direction. Nothing mentioned of her 2 failed marriages or run away son though. Again I think that was Mr. Sherks intention to keep those things separate. Good and fast read.
