Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time

In this extremely candid and honest account, Helen Hayes, acclaimed "First Lady of the American Theatre," looks back on her life and career, and you are invited to a private listening session. So sit back, relax, and listen to behind-the-scenes portraits and anecdotes of personalities such as Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, John F. Kennedy, Al Capone, and more. She also tells about the pleasures and difficulties that go with being a celebrity and expresses her strong views on what is wrong with American theatre today and what has always been wrong with Hollywood. And, she'll reflect on painful memories in her past personal life, including her guilt for leaving her young children, losing her daughter, Mary and her husband, playwright and screenwriter Charles MacArthur. At ninety, Helen Hayes has moved among the world's most famous and talented people. This is an engrossing account of a uniquely rich and productive life.
