Once upon a time, there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in Tranquilite - Tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you. You knew your place in the scheme of things. And if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you. In this village, if you saw something you weren't supposed to see, you learned to look the other way. If perchance your hopes had been disappointed, you learned never to ask for more. So through good times and bad, famine and feast, the villagers held fast to their traditions. Until, one winter day, a sly wind blew in from the North

Thank heaven : a memoir by Leslie Caron( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leslie Caron made her film debut with Gene Kelly in the classic MGM musical An American in Paris, created the role of Gigi, danced with Fred Astaire in Daddy Long Legs, and starred with Cary Grant in Father Goose. In Thank Heaven (an homage to the song Maurice Chevalier sings about her in Gigi) Caron shares her remarkable life story. From her childhood with her American mother and French father in occupied France to her early success as a young ballerina; to her meeting Gene Kelly and her years in Hollywood; to her love affairs (including a very funny and very public one with Warren Beatty) and motherhood; to her alcoholism and depression; and finally her recovery and continuing success in film and television, Caron offers an illuminating account of her career, filled with reminiscences of MGM at the end of its Golden Era.--From publisher description
