Lee Grant: 'I Said Yes to Everything'
Thursday, July 10, 2014
Actress Lee Grant was born Lyova Haskell Rosenthal in New York City and spent her youth accumulating more experiences than most people have in a lifetime. She was a celebrated Broadway star and a Vogue “It Girl,” and was nominated for an Academy Award at 24. But then, she wound up on the Hollywood black list and had to fight to re-establish her career. Her memoir I Said Yes to Everything is set amid the New York theater scene of the 1950s and the star-studded parties of Malibu in the 1970s, and it tells Lee Grant’s personal story of political passion and Hollywood glamour.
