Surviving Cissy: My Family Affair of Life in Hollywood

Kathy Garver, the teenage heartthrob from the hit series “Family Affair” (1966-1971), was no one-hit wonder, but a journeywoman actress who appeared in such classic films as “Night of the Hunter” and “The Ten Commandments” long before she became a television icon. This memoir is a recollection of a working actress’s experiences, from the many films, television shows, and stage plays in which she performed, to her second career as a voice-over specialist in popular animated films and audiobooks. Featuring anecdotes, Hollywood history, and details of her relationships with such stars as Charlton Heston and Jon Provost, “Surviving Cissy” is a veritable quilt of Kathy’s exciting life.
