内容紹介

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

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.

レビュー

“If, hovering around the tell-all memoir genre, another category exists—such as, say, the ‘tell-some’—then Thank Heaven, with its excellent blend of exposure and decorum, falls gracefully within it. Leslie Caron is a good writer with a volume of short stories—Vengeance —under her belt, as well as (as she puts it) ‘a few scripts.’ Her concision, grace, and good taste still leave room for revelations aplenty.”—Kate Light, The Weekly Standard
 
“Caron provides countless dishy details about her exploits, which are sure to entertain film buffs, Caron fans and aspiring actors.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“This is more than a typical Hollywood autobiography… Rather than approach her life in the public eye from a typically Hollywood angle, Caron writes seriously and passionately about her work, her craft, and her relationships with the people she met along the way… it’s sure to strike a chord with those who value classic movies and classic actresses.”—David Pitt, Booklist

“Caron recounts her life and career as Hollywood’s ‘little French girl’ in chatty, charming style, revealing an often troubled woman behind the glamorous image of an international movie star. The author writes movingly of her childhood in occupied France, peppering her memories of rationing and shortages with surprising insights into the psychology of the situation… The little French girl spins an engrossing yarn.”—Kirkus

“A record of a lost era of Hollywood that’s littered with respectful anecdotes about the great and the not-so-good, co-stars, friends and lovers… Thank Heaven abounds with A-list anecdotes: about ‘vain’ Dirk Bogarde; Cary Grant (‘very, very nice but capable of sudden fits of real bad temper’) and one of her favorite co-stars, Fred Astaire, who described Ginger Rogers as a sloppy dancer, ‘a little wobbly at the end of a number.’”—Charlotte Heathcote, Express (UK)

5つ星のうち 4.0 Thank Heaven for Leslie Caron 2015/9/5
投稿者 Elaine Shefer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Caron's "memoir" is as charming as she is. The book is fast reading, most of it very interesting. If the reader does not know the people she is referring to, it can be boring. Some parts are written very well, those that describe, in depth, the life and personalities of people she was seriously involved with on a professional level. Other parts read more like "name dropping" and I think this is because she wants to put into this short memoir a lifetime of people and memories, and sometimes you feel like she is doing a "rush" job. The book is extremely "politically correct" and she is very careful to restrain herself from both ugly gossip and badmouthing anyone. As I said, she is a very charming woman, at least from the impression one gets from her professional work, her manners and her the way she writes.
What is so enjoyable about the book is to discover her childhood, her sufferings during the war years, the nature of her family (a sweet French, pharmicist father and a neurotic mother who indeed takes her own life at some point), her early start in Hollywood and her development personally and professionally through the years. She may look like a little "gamin" but she was and is a strong, determined woman.
I personally felt that her decision to leave dance and concentrate on acting (although she was not a terribly "bad" actress) was a mistake because she really was a dancer and a beautiful one at that but, on the other hand, dancing has a short life span.
In short, I highly recommend this book for those who love know and love Leslie Caron and of course are curious about where she came from
and where she went.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Long Overdue 2012/11/7
投稿者 Jay B. Lane - (Amazon.com)

Leslie Caron's memoir was everything I wanted:
* Leslie's (sometimes eccentric) family background
* Her personal experience in WWII
* Her professional training
* Her reaction to being discovered
* The inside scoop about her co-stars and friends
* No angsty dwelling on a period of her life that was less than stellar.

I particularly enjoyed her comments about familiar names: Warren Beatty, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, Jane Wyman, Jean Renoir, all of the cast members of "Gigi," her experiences filming "An American in Paris," her stage fright, her marriages and her family.

This is not a dishy "Tell-All" but instead the observations of an intelligent woman who had the privilege of socializing with "name brands" most of her life.

I bought a copy of this book from Amazon.com, then carelessly left it in a hotel lobby. When I went back to Amazon.com to order a replacement, they promptly reminded me that I had already purchased the book. and included the date. I LOVE that feature!

Leslie Caron weaves a funny and poignant story of her life in France, in the ballet, and in the movies. Caron's narrative presents a positive voice throughout every ordeal in life. I have read many stories of the German occupation of France during WWII, and Leslie Caron downplays that era of her life. She mentions long lines for food and a little hunger, but does not dwell on the terrible hardship of the French population. Then on her first job doing An American in Paris with Gene Kelly, Caron cuts her hair, and the film production is halted for 3 weeks for her hair to grow. My opinion of Leslie Caron plummeted at that point, but she continues her positive attitude and her enjoyment of her fellow workers throughout the book. The pictures included in the book illustrate Caron’s warmth and generosity.

I think miss Caron underrates herself along with critics and associates. I personally believe her performance in Fanny made it one of the great classic films we have to treasure. Of all the thousands of films I have enjoyed this one is in my top five, alongside such films as The Bicycle Thief and Out of The Past. I learned in the book that she is a richly endowed intellectual with a streak of courage and unflinching humanity. What a rare commodity I envy those who met her at her hotel without realizing she is one in a billion. What a woman!

Rather good for an entertainment Bio, and actually written by Caron who was an already published writer. I can think of only 2 other 'actors' who wrote their own - publishers never give credit to the ghost writers and just have the actors name as author. Leslie had a very interesting early life and she describes (sign of a good read) not just her life but all that is happening around her. France before the war, and the very hard life of Paris during the occupation, Hollywood in the early 1950's and all the people she met and worked with. She shares the cultural differences between war recovering Europe and her early life in America, and later, her years living in England. Did you know her mother was an American and that she became a citizen of the US in 2008? Too many actors write only about themselves and unless you are reading it to find out what movies they made or who they slept with, it is generally a self-serving boor. Leslie's Bio is of an interesting, observing, and witty life.
