Not recommended watching-Read her Autobiography
10 September 2019 | by carsal7See all my reviews

I bought her autobiography in 1991 and still use it as a reference from time to time. I do not understand the reason for this horrible production. The commentators lend zero expertise or knowledge of the subject matter. Give me facts and I will form my own opinion. I agree with the previous reviewer about the nasty vindictive nature of this program. Ben Mankiewicz said on TCM that this was the first time ever to air on this channel. I would be surprised if Turner Classic Movies ever showed it again. Awful, just awful.
