Lee Grant was to Warren Beatty in SHAMPOO what Anne Bancroft was to Dustin Hoffman in THE GRADUATE. Or maybe not, but it's what comes to mind in my own limited exposure to movies. Because I remember her character in SHAMPOO as incredibly sexy and erotic, a performance that earned her an Oscar. But I was not aware that her showbiz experience dated way back, or that she was first nominated for an academy award in 1951 for best supporting actress in DETECTIVE STORY (starring Kirk Douglas). And then she was blacklisted during the McCarthy era and didn't work in TV or movies for the next twelve years (but did keep working in plays). And I didn't know that she was in an emotionally abusive relationship and marriage for a dozen years with a controlling, much older man, playing mother to his children from his two previous marriages, and giving birth to a daughter, Dinah Manoff (who became a successful actress herself). And I was not aware of her second very distinguished and successful career as a documentary film maker. And it does seem that during her two careers in TV and movies she came to know pretty much everyone who was anyone in the show business world.

What impressed me perhaps the most about this fascinating collection of memories was Grant's disarming and complete honesty in these anecdotal essays, maybe because she was long retired and already in her eighties when she finally began writing it all down and figured, What the hell, most of these people are already dead, and so will I be soon, so what have I got to lose? But here's the thing: I SAID YES TO EVERYTHING (2014) was published ten years ago, and guess what? Lee Grant is still around, at either 97 or 98. Her exact age is a mystery, as she made some changes re her date of birth many, many years ago. Anyway, this old dame is one very good writer, with a treasure trove of stories to tell, both personal and professional. I loved her book. Very highly recommended.

This was a surprisingly interesting book, in part because Grant was blacklisted from television and radio for 12 years and it totally shaped her career and her identity for better and for worse. It's gets a little laundry-listy at some points, but there is just enough dish, it isn't mean and the Shelly Winters anecdotes are awesome.

For a celebrity memoir, I think that's pretty high praise.
