Dorothy Lamour is one of my favorite classic Hollywood movie stars, so this book was an enjoyable read for me. In it she talks about how she got into movies and who she met and became good friends with over the years. She knew so many people, it was fun reading about some of her encounters with celebrities like Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, Howard Hughes, and Carole Lombard. In addition, one of my favorite funny ladies, Carol Burnett, gets a mention in this book. Turns out she's a Lamour fan as well. ...more
This book was delightful, and touching, and I really learned a lot about early Hollywood. Dorothy Lamour is one of my favorites so I loved learning more about her, and reading about all these adventures she had all around where I currently live and grew up. She worked really hard and truly had a wonderful life. The years pass so quickly for all of us. You really see just how fast when you read about such a full life in such a short period of time. A lovely memoir. I'll carry it with me.
Dorothy Lamour was an American film actress. She is probably best-remembered for appearing in the Road to... movies, a series of successful comedies co-starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
