Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent, comprehensive, well-researched and well written 224-page guide to the cinema career of the multi-talented, multi-faceted, Oscar-winning actress/author/political activist, who took both Broadway and Hollywood by storm and has remained a star throughout a distinguished career which has lasted over 50 years. Featuring 285 black and white photographs, all beautifully reproduced, the book's opening chapter offers a solid biography of the redheaded tomboy from Richmond, Virginia, who grew up to be a world-famous movie star. MacLaine's bio is the stuff of many fictional Hollywood movies, yet in her case it's all true. At the tender age of 20, MacLaine was already a Broadway veteran chorus girl of several shows before becoming the understudy to star, Carol Haney, in the smash hit musical "Pajama Game" in 1954. One week after the show opened to rave reviews, Haney broke her ankle, and MacLaine was thrust onstage, triumphed and overnight became a star. Within weeks she was signed by Hollywood mega-producer, Hal Wallis, and then cast by Alfred Hitchcock to star in her very first film, the black comedy "The Trouble With Harry" released later that year, and she has never looked back.
Following the bio section, each film in her career has its own chapter offering a synopsis of the plot followed by reviews, production notes and anecdotal material, plus select publicity and candid photos. There are also chapters on MacLaine's career in the legitimate theater, on television and in nightclubs, plus a chapter with complete transcript of her appearance on Edward R. Murrow's esteemed CBS-TV program, "Person to Person" which aired March 6, 1959. The book finishes with a fine portrait gallery of MacLaine in a wide array of her film roles.
