The Revealing Biography of the Girl with the Golden Giggle.
Thirty years after her television debut, Goldie Hawn is still at the top: Hollywood's longest-lasting actress. Though her contemporaries - Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda, Barbra Streisand - are acknowledged as finer actresses, Goldie Hawn's entrepreneurial streak, carefully veiled behind the girly facade, has generated a far greater personal fortune.
Hollywood's publicity men continue to project her as the quintessential Miss American Pie, and an indulgent press has helped to rewrite some of the more colourful aspects of her past. Yet behind the golden giggle exists a complex woman - "schizophrenically ambitious", as one former business partner puts it.
The highs and lows of Goldie's turbulent Hollywood career are compulsive reading. Three times her work dried up. Three times she has come back; wiser, stronger, funnier. Ever the golden girl, 'Absolutely . . . Goldie' is the revelatory story of the reality behind the myth.
