Myrna Loy was beautiful, honest and down to earth. I could not put the book down. Her life was not without heartaches and challenges yet she prevails and goes on to have a long and distinguished career. I was already a fan, did not know much about her and ended up absolutely loving her and vowing to revisit her films as soon as possible.
Myrna Loy is a woman ahead of her time. She discusses candidly and with amazing detail her life inside and outside the studio. From her early desire to dance, through her struggle to get "through the gates" of the MGM lot, her almost slave-like work at MGM, her transformation into the "perfect wife", and her endless humanitarian work (most notably for UNESCO), Myrna Loy's life was more complex and substantial than that of "just a Hollywood starlet.

For most of Loy's long Hollywood career she was known as "the perfect wife. On the basis of this memoir, it would seem that she was also pretty nearly "the perfect human being'' as well.

Myrna Loy (born Myrna Adele Williams; August 2, 1905 – December 14, 1993) was an American film, television and stage actress. Trained as a dancer, Loy devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films. She was originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, but her career prospects improved greatly following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934).
Although James Kotsilibas-Davis provides the guidance of the narrative
Although James Kotsilibas-Davis provides the guidance of the narrative. it is Myrna Loy's voice throughout that made this seem as if I was sitting down with her and having a fascinating conversation (in addition to being able to look through her scrapbooks). Those unfamiliar with Myrna Loy will likely recognize her from many "exotic" roles in the 1930's and as the delectable Nora Charles opposite William Powell in THE THIN MAN movie One of the best autobiographies I've read in some time.

A fresh look at Myrna Loy's 1987 autobiography Being and Becoming side by side with 2011's Myrna Loy: The Only Good Girl in Hollywood by Emily W. Leider. I don't know how much of the text of that book is Loy's own voice as opposed to her co-authors' interpretation of it, but whatever the case may be, Being and Becoming, for me, is Myrna Loy, the woman and the star.
