Summary note
Sally Kellerman's portrayal of Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan in Robert Altman's M*A*S*H remains a landmark performance. Throughout her long career Kellerman has been a real dame--honest, down-to-earth, sultry, funny, and unfiltered. Here, she shares colorful tales of her years as an up-and-coming actress in the early 1960s, when Hollywood was a small neighborhood full of chance encounters. To pay for acting classes ($10 each, alongside the likes of Jack Nicholson) she waited tables at a coffee house on the Sunset Strip that was a hangout for Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen, and Warren Beatty. During the Vietnam War, she dated Henry Kissinger. Through the years there were career highs and low, along with drugs, affairs, diets, and therapy, a music album, marriages, and unexpected motherhood. Inspiring, poignant, and often hilarious, Sally Kellerman's story is a paean to the power of reinvention.--From publisher description.
