19 Reviews

The definitive memoir by legendary actress and performer Debbie Reynolds that offers a unique and deeply personal perspective on Hollywood and its elite, from the glory days of MGM to the present.

Unsinkable shines a spotlight on the resilient woman whose talent and passion for her work have endured for more than six decades. In her engaging, down-to-earth voice, Debbie shares private details about her man and money troubles, and invites us into the close circle of her family life. She looks back at her life as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age including her lifelong friendship with Elizabeth Taylor, recalls stories that never reached the tabloids about celebrities like Ava Gardner, Frank Sinatra, and Gene Kelly, and also takes us on a guided tour through each of her movies with behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

Frank and forthright, Unsinkable is a revealing portrait of a woman whose determination is an inspiration.
