At the end of her 1988 autobiography Debbie: My Life, Debbie Reynolds wrote about finally finding love with her third husband, calling him “brave, loyal and loving.” If only she knew then that he had his mistress stashed at the Stardust Hotel (just down the street from Debbie’s own newly-opened Las Vegas hotel), that he had embezzled all of the proceeds from her business and would leave her bankrupt, and that he would threaten her life when she finally confronted him about his behavior. Today Reynolds says, “When I read the optimistic ending of [my first memoir] now, I can’t believe how naïve I was when I wrote it. In this book, I look back at the years since then and revisit stories I could not fully tell at that time. To paraphrase Bette Davis—Fasten your seatbelts, I’ve had a bumpy ride.” In Unsinkable, Reynolds shares the highs and lows of her life as an actress during Hollywood’s Golden Age, anecdotes about her lifelong friendship with Elizabeth Taylor, her experiences as the foremost collector of Hollywood memorabilia, and intimate details of her marriages and family life with her children Carrie and Todd Fisher.  Unsinkable is dishy, fun, and an absolute must-read for any fan of Debbie’s and Old Hollywood.
