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.

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.
