Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823078884, Hardcover)

• Renowned character actress Heckart knew everybody in Hollywood—and her son spills
the stories she could never tell

• Juicy tidbits about Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Lucille Ball, Paul Newman, Bette Davis, Ethel Merman, and dozens of others

• Part memoir, part scrapbook, part scandal sheet—unusual and enjoyable

• Book has been endorsed by more than a dozen celebs, including Ellen DeGeneres, Betty White, Goldie Hawn, and Joanne Woodward

Rex Reed called this memoir of award-winning character actress Eileen Heckart “touching, hilarious, enthralling”—and readers everywhere will call it fabulous! Written by Heckart’s son, this unusual biography tells all the tales that Heckart heard and saw in her fifty-year career in movies, theater, and TV. Oscar-, Emmy-, and Tony-winning actress Heckart, she of the foghorn voice and forward-leaning gait, worked with most of the greatest stars of the twentieth century. Wait till you read the one about Dietrich and—wait, can’t tell that one here. Or the one about—nope, not that one either. Oh, well. Just Outside the Spotlight is a remarkable memoir, packed with heartwarming family photos and never-before-seen images of stars, and with unforgettable anecdotes.
