My Life, In My Own Words,
With My Own Mouth!

My Life, In My Own Words, With My Own MOUTH! is an audio version of the memoir I wrote with Jim Hesselman, How I Lost 10 Pounds In 53 Years. Hear stories about Doris Day, Marlon Brando, Mother Teresa, Fred Ebb, Lucy & Desi, Eve Arden, Gypsy Rose Lee, Liz Smith, Ronald Reagan, Barbra Streisand, and Carol Burnett. Hear how I got on the cover of LIFE and nobody saw it! How I played the Tuba for Spike Jones. How Gower Champion got me into the movies and Shelley Winters prepared for The Poseiden Adventure in my pool, and so much more right from my own lips. I've also included snippets of songs and routines from long out of print recordings. Did you know I was the first to record “Fly Me To The Moon” and “Maybe This Time”? I was also the first person Charles Schultz allowed to voice his lovable loud-mouthed Lucy character. I tell my whole life in four hours!
