Synopsis

"Caron provides countless dishy details about her exploits which are sure to entertain film buffs, Caron fans and aspiring actors."
-Booklist


While still a teenager, Leslie Caron-the daughter of an American mother and French father-was literally plucked from the Ballets des Champs- Elysées to star opposite Gene Kelly in An American in Paris, and went on to become an MGM star and one of the most cherished and admired actresses of our time.

Wry, poignant, and unguardedly frank, Thank Heaven (an homage to "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," the song Maurice Chevalier sings about her in Gigi) recounts Caron's unorthodox childhood in France, her string of Hollywood successes and leading men, her very public affair with Warren Beatty, and her later triumph over depression and alcoholism. Both witty and deeply moving, Caron's unsentimental memoir will captivate anyone who loves classic American movies.
