In Read My Lips, actress Sally Kellerman tells the story of a Hollywood that is no more. Drawing on personal experiences with countless entertainment luminaries - Jack Nicholson and Jennifer Jones – but also leading thinkers of their time - Dr. Milton Wexler and Henry Kissinger – Read My Lips is part The Kids Stays in the Picture, by Robert Evans, part Life, by Keith Richards; the story of a time when black and white turned to color, safe hilltop homes turned to slaughter houses, and fun highs turned into lifestyles of addictions; the archetypal story of what it meant to be an actress in the twentieth century.
Read My Lips promises a revealing look into a glamorous but troubled Hollywood era.
