KIRKUS REVIEW

The glaceed lives and loves of Tony and Cyd climaxed in the Forties and early Fifties, and their next 28 years of world-traveling married life--while filled with glamour and Tony's eager table-hopping--are mainly hohum. Cyd began dancing as a child, entered the famed Ballet Russe at 14, sidetracked in film. She looks back on her Kelly and Astaire musicals fondly but regrets that she stayed with M-G-M as long as she did rather than branch out--into what she doesn't say. Tony's hardest moments were during World War II when the Navy discharged him unfairly for spreading bribes (""I knew in my heart and soul that I had done nothing wrong. . .""); he immediately enlisted in the Army as a buck private. Tony's heartthrobs included tear-stained Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth, spouse Alice Faye, and other glitterbugs. Cyd was romanced heavily by Howard Hughes. No tragedies--only a sunlight-&-champagne decision about which surfboard to ride today.
