Abstract:

Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery was one of the most prolific and popular actresses of the twentieth century. In her more than five hundred appearances on television, film and the stage, Elizabeth Montgomery s talent, charisma, and personality have charmed millions for decades. This delightful new book delineates, dissects, and celebrates the diversity and minutia of Montgomery s remarkable career, while chronicling just how much her real life spilled into her historic roles on stage and screen. The book is based on Pilato s exclusive interviews with the actress and supplemented with commentary provided by myriad entertainment professionals, journalists, and media and classic TV historians, including the Oscar-nominated actress Juanita Moore (Montgomery s co-star from the historic White Lie episode of TV s 77 Sunset Strip), and producer/writer/actor Jimmy Lydon (Elizabeth s co-star from the Wagon Train episode The Victorio Bottecelli Story.) Including plot summaries, airdates, release dates, and behind-the-scenes notes and anecdotes of select performances, The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery is the ultimate handy, entertaining, and informative reference to the on- and off-screen adventures of one of the world s most beloved stars.
