Phoning in from LA to delve into her memoir about struggling to find her own voice and her craft in the Hollywood studio system gauntlet, of sex symbol caricatures and casting couches; a predatory Ronald Reagan and Howard Hughes; McCarthyism and the Great Depression; and rising from the ashes of studio system sexist typecasting, after tossing an Audie Murphy script into the fire. Also, revisiting scenes with Paul Newman and the pool hall classic, The Hustler.
