This delightful new book delineates, dissects, and celebrates the diversity and minutia of Montgomery’s remarkable career, while chronicling just how much her real life spilled into her historic roles on stage and screen. The book is based on Pilato’s exclusive interviews with the actress and supplemented with commentary provided by myriad entertainment professionals, journalists, and media and classic TV historians, including the Oscar-nominated actress Juanita Moore (Montgomery’s co-star from the historic “White Lie” episode of TV’s 77 Sunset Strip), and producer/writer/actor Jimmy Lydon (Elizabeth’s co-star from the Wagon Train episode “The Victorio Bottecelli Story.”)
Including plot summaries, airdates, release dates, and behind-the-scenes notes and anecdotes of select performances, The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery is the ultimate handy, entertaining, and informative reference to the on- and off-screen adventures of one of the world’s most beloved stars.

A fun look at the prolific works of Elizabeth Montgomery. Extensive listings of the actress's work on stage, film and TV with photo sections. As a fan of Bewitched, this section proved the most interesting with synopses of the seasons and the various changes they brought as well as individual listings of the episodes. In fact, there's one episode listed that I don't think I ever have seen, so now i am curious to go find it and watch. Fans looking for details of Montgomery's career will be satisfied, while those wanting some more personal information or quotes from and about her will find themselves wanting more..Was this review helpful?

Anne Edwards does an amazing job with her biography of Vivian Leigh, but Pilato's play script style for his biography of Elizabeth Montgomery lacks depth. The writing style lacks unity and quickly loses appeal. Pilato provides too much emphasis on Robert Montgomery. I thoroughly enjoyed Bewitched and admired Montgomery's performance in The Legend of Lizzie Borden. Pilato does little to enhance Montgomery's lifeWas this review helpful?
