Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy Year End Film Book Survey

Hey, folks, another of our new books made Leonard Maltin's list. Here's what he said about it:
---
MY LIFE DANCING WITH THE STARS by Miriam Nelson; Forward by Blake Edwards and Julie Andrews (Bear Manor Media)Miriam Nelson has indeed been dancing, choreographing, and coaching stars—and would-be stars—for many years, and she has many interesting stories to tell. Disney buffs may know that she originally staged the Golden Horseshoe Revue at Disneyland, participated in the now-famous opening day telecast, and worked on many other Disney projects over the years. They may not be aware that she was married to dancer Gene Nelson, appeared in countless films and TV shows, and then worked behind the scenes with everyone from Lucille Ball to Ingrid Bergman. Miriam is a delightful person who recently performed a one-woman show—at the age of 90. Her book is highly anecdotal (with, I’m happy to say, an index) and is liberally illustrated.

Great work, Miriam!
