Few actresses command such unqualified affection as Angela Lansbury. For more than fifty years she has appeared in classic films (The Manchurian Candidate), in musicals (Gypsy, Sweeney Todd), and, of course, on television for twelve seasons in Murder, She Wrote. She has won five Tonys and has been nominated for three Oscars and twelve Emmys.Balancing Act is Lansbury's triumphant story, in which she has cooperated with noted theater writer and critic Martin Gottfried. Lansbury became established by her late teens in films like The Picture of Dorian Gray. While her career flourished, she was frustrated by continually playing supporting roles, until the musical Mame made her a major star. A string of stage successes followed, and she went on to conquer television in Murder, She Wrote.In Balancing Act Lansbury appears frequently in her own wry voice, sharing thoughts on everything from acting to gardening to her difficulties with raising her children. Here in all its color and drama is the inspiring story of a woman who has truly become a national institution.… (mer)

Charming and inspiring, but not really more than you would expect. Gottfried is a New York theatre critic, so naturally this biography is most enamored with Lansbury's Broadway career (certainly a legitimate stance, since that's where she has had the most success). To his credit, Gottfried doesn't short on the details of the star's life in film and television. Personally, I would have preferred an autobiography. This is a good biography, but by no means a transcendent one. As a rabid fan of the actress, I enjoyed it, but I would limit my recommendation to a "fans-only" audience. ( )
