Blink, Blink, Cross Your Arms and as a Baby Boomer you are transported back into time to the 1960's and I Dream of Jeannie. A role Barbara Eden will forever be known and remembered for by millions. However, her career started a decade before and has carried on for decades after. This memoir covers all of it. The happy times, and the heart breaking times. She doesn't miss any of it. Sometimes this book feels more like a recitation of her life rather than someone who has lived it. She recounts all of her meetings and interactions with the Men of Hollywood and Politics, who either make a pass at her or don't. She spends time talking about the making of Jeannie and Larry Hagman and the creative team. She makes it a point to talk about Marilyn Monroe, her idol but not really any of the multiple female stars who mostly were jealous of her. She shares the stories of her three husbands and of the sons she has lost. I just got bored by the end as I think I was looking for more depth or passion but seemed to have gotten the sanitized version (except for the parts about her son Michael) that views the world through rose colored glasses. Still, I can never pass up an I Dream of Jeannie slot machine at the casino. Way to go, Master. :)
