I am still a huge fan and I will always love Ms Beadle!
I never experience confusion between actors and the characters they portray, but Stewart seems determined to shatter the sweet schoolmarm image. Why, I don't know, because the image she does leave us with is of a second-string actress who's a bit of a tramp, and the latter quality seems to be her only real association with the A-list of the era.
I don't know why I read Hollywood memoirs, because I really hate name-dropping. It's at its worst here, and even worse, the name-dropping is written in such a way as to attempt to create dramatic pauses ("You would know him as .... Bill Murray" or "His name was Kevin.................................Costner.").
I found her inclusion of the fact that Michael Landon once propositioned her distasteful and unnecessary.
Once again, if you're looking for an interesting look at LHOTP, written by someone you'll actually like, read "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch" by Alison Arngrim and then patiently wait for something else worthwhile to come along.
And to all our former "stars" out there: If your own name isn't worth dropping, then maybe you shouldn't assume everyone will enjoy your memoirs.
Read this book to get the scoop on good stuff!
In a word - WOW. Charlotte is a terrific actress, who never believed that she'd had a life interesting enough to warrant a book. Thankfully, co-writer Andy Demsky managed to convince her otherwise, and their collaboration on this page turning, funny, sad, shocking and heart lifting memoir, which will enthral and move the reader in equal amounts.
Charlotte is refreshingly honest about everything in her life - warts and all. She's had an incredible career panning over some 50 years. Fans of Little House will be thrilled with her memories on set, as will those who prefer her cult classic turns for David Lynch on Eraserhead and Twin Peaks.
Charlotte's battles with addiction moved me very much, as it reminded me a lot of what I went through with my dad who is no longer with us anymore, and made me understand him a little more.
There is also lots of humour in the book, and some of the famous names that cropped up in Charlotte's life (notably Jim Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Bill Murray, Jon Voight, Richard Dreyfuss, Shirley MacLaine, etc!) provide memories which are interesting, entertaining and juicy!
I have read Charlotte's book several times, and find something different in it every time that captivates or entertains me. It's an inspirational story, and I cannot recommend it enough. I also cannot wait to hear Charlotte's audio version of this book, which should be coming very soon!
Amazing job, Charlotte and Andy. Thank you so much.
