MY LIFE IN THREE ACTS
Simon & Schuster 1991 - Thanks to freelance writer Hatch's unobtrusive collaboration, Hayes's voice is practically audible in this candid, humorous and deeply moving story. B orn with the century in Washington, D.C., Hayes first appeared on stage at age six. The shy and quiet future star's career was managed by her mother u ntil she met roistering, boozy Charles MacArthur, whom she wed in 1928, the year the MacArthur-Ben Hecht play, The Front Page , opened on Broadway. Th e "mismatch" lasted until MacArthur's death in 1956, enduring the starkly d escribed loss of their 19-year-old daughter Mary to polio. In other chapter s, the actress entertains, recalling the couple's relationships with lumina ries in the theater and films, valued companions and a few troublemakers. S he can be caustic, noting the failings in modern stage, film and TV product ions. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
