Review: My Life in Three Acts

User Review  - Donna - Goodreads

A gentle little autobiography, low on drama and backstage gossip but high on the value of family and sacrifices for true love. Hayes doesn't really reveal much, but then again, she was a tremendously ladylike actress - very old school. Read full review

Review: My Life in Three Acts

User Review  - Kim Martin - Goodreads

Nice memoir, and some enticing behind-the-scenes tidbits. But let's face it, she was just too nice and normal a person to write anything very eye-opening. But it was worth the read, and her love for her husband Charles MacArthur was genuine. It made me want to read more about him, for sure. Read full review
