Born Lyova Haskell Rosenthal in New York City, actress Lee Grant spent her youth accumulating more experiences than most people have in a lifetime: from student at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse to member of the legAsendary Actors Studio; from celebrated Broadway star to Vogue a€œIt Girl.a€ At age twenty-four, she was nominated for an Academy Award for Detective Story, and a year later found herself married and a mother for the first time, her career on the rise. And then she lost it all. Her name landed on the Hollywood blackAslist, her offers for film and television roles ground to a halt, and her marriage fell apart. Finding reserves of strength she didna€™t know she had, Grant took action against anti-Communist witch hunts in the arts. She threw herself into work, accepting every theater or teaching job that came her way. She met a man ten years her junior and began a wild, liberatAsing fling that she never expected would last a lifetime. And after twelve years of fighting the blacklist, she was finally exonerated. With courAsage and style, Grant rebuilt her life on her own terms: first stop, a starring role on Peyton Place, and then leads in Valley of the Dolls, In the Heat of the Night, and Shampoo, for which she won her first Oscar. Set amid the New York theater scene of the fifties and the star-studded parties of Malibu in the seventies, I Said Yes to Everything evokes a world of political passion and movie-star glamour. Grant tells endlessly delightful tales of costars and friends such as Warren Beatty, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Sidney Poitier, and writes with the verve and candor befitting such a seductive and beloved star.There were no rules to break there. Dinah was riding her bike up and down the Colony. I had bought a tiny white poodle from a makeup lady on Peyton Place. Dinah had him in her basket. Such freedom was shaping her sevenyearold psyche.
