It took practically an act of Congress to get a copy of this video. I even called A & E directly and was told that it was out of print. Big thanks to my local library! It was only available from two other libraries, via interlibrary loan, in the entire country and I was able to borrow it from a library in New York. It was well worth the effort as it was a truly delightful portrait of a lovely actress. I was able to get a better sense of why she was such a graceful and gifted artist. The fact that she was unmercifully bullied in school made her very compassionate to others and gave every role she played such remarkable humanity. I enjoyed the interviews-especially from Jean Simmons whom she did one of my favorite movies, "The Grass is Greener" with. Also, I was treated to brief interview excerpts from the lovely Miss Kerr herself which had been done in the mid 80s before she became ill. The best story she told was about being "discovered" in England. She was in a restaurant when producer, Gabriel Pascal, came to her table. He addressed her at "Sweet Virgin" which amused her and floored me. He then asked if she was an actress and when she told him that she was, he said, "Then take your hair down. You look like a tart!" Holy cow. The look on her face when she tells this story is classic as well as when she tells about how she got the role in "From Here to Eternity". All were just lovely, fun memories. I think that people were baffled when she walked away from the film industry in the late 60s because she was so good at her craft and still quite beautiful in her late 40s. I think those same people were also awed and, maybe, even envious of her courage and comfortable sense of self that she didn't NEED to be in the lime light and be a movie star forever. I really want this video in my DK collection and I'm hoping that someday it will be available for purchase again.
A Lovely Tribute to a Lovely Star
It would be wonderful to have this DVD re-released. Deborah has passed from this realm, but her movies remain, reminding of us what a special actress and sensitive lady she was. It would please her fans to have this ultimate filmed biography -- almost as nice as Deborah receiving her long delayed Oscar in 1994.
