Publisher Comments:

Based on author Herbie J Pilato s exclusive interviews with Elizabeth Montgomery prior to her death in 1995 (from colon cancer), Twitch Upon A Starincludes never-before published material and commentary from several individuals associated with her remarkable life and career before, during, and after Bewitched, including her classic feature films The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell (1955), Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed? (1963), and Johnny Cool (1963). Two of Montgomery s many popular TV movies, A Case of Rape (which remains one of the highest-rated TV-movies of all time) and The Legend of Lizzie Borden (which will soon be remade as a feature film), were groundbreaking and remain classics. But Twitch Upon a Star also goes behind the scenes to explore Montgomery s political activism, including her early advocacy for AIDS research and the peace movement, support for the gay community, andparticipation as narrator ofcontroversial 1988 feature film documentary Cover-Up, and its 1991 Oscar-winning sequel, The Panama Deception (both aboutthe Iran/Contra scandal of the l980s). In addition, Montgomery had complicated relationships with her father, screen legend Robert Montgomery (she was a liberal; he was a staunch conservative), and four husbands (including actor Gig Young, who later died in a double murder/suicide). Still, to friends such as fellow performers Sally Kemp and Florence Henderson, Ronny Cox, and the Oscar-winning actor Cliff Robertson she was just Lizzie, down-to-earth and unaffected, just like Samantha the witch-with-a-twitch Stephens, her most famous role.

I was always a fan of Bewitched and Elizabeth Montgomery so I couldn't wait to read this. It was a facinating read - from her strained relationship with her father, her four marriages (and finally finding true love with actor Robert Foxworthy) to how she felt about her costars. Loved it. It was just... well, bewitching!
