Whistling Girl
by Ann Marcus
Hardcover - 320 pages (November 1998)
Our price: $22.95

As cocreator and writer of the wild, groundbreaking soap Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, Ann Marcus didn't hold back--and that's still her style. Her new, ultra-dishy autobiography, Whistling Girl (Mulholland Pacific Publishing), chronicles her years as queen of the prime-time serials--she also wrote for Peyton Place, Knots Landing and Falcon Crest--but what really had us gasping were her no- holds-barred memories of writing Search For Tomorrow, Days of Our Lives and General Hospital. It's all here: paranoia, petty jealousies, office politics and angry stars. Marcus says she was verbally attacked in public by SFT leading lady Mary Stuart. She openly blames her firing at Days on the "plotting" of elderly cowriter Elizabeth Harrower, mother of the show's star, Susan Seaforth Hayes. Then there's the 1988 set-side intervention to help an alcoholic GH actress, whom Marcus doesn't name but does say is still on the show, making it very easy to do the math. Ouch!
