Intimate Portrait: Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher (1998)
This episode of the Lifetime series is a pretty good look at the
relationship between Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher. If
you're watching this in 2017 like I am then you're well aware of the
bizarre and tragic events that closed out 2016 as both the mother and
daughter died within days of each other.
Looking back on this documentary you can't help but think that it did a
terrific job at telling their story as well as making it more clear as
to why Debbie couldn't live without her daughter. Both are interviewed,
as well as Carrie's brother, as they discuss the various aspects of
their lives. This includes the troubled relationship with Eddie Fisher,
Carrie's drug problems as well as POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE and how
Carrie found herself down the same road as her mother in regards to be
single with a new kid. There's a lot of great information here and the
episode is certainly a very entertaining one and worth watching for
