Summary, etc.:
The iconic actress looks back on her days as a child star for Disney, as well as the challenges of dealing with an industry that wanted her to remain to bound to a wholesome, youthful public image.
Mills was still a preteen when she began her acting career and was quickly thrust into the spotlight. Under the wing of Walt Disney himself, Mills was transformed into one of the biggest child starlets of the 1960s through iconic roles in both British and American films. She became one of only twelve actors in history to be bestowed with the Academy Juvenile Award. In her memoir, Mills provides a unique window into when Hollywood was still Tinseltown and the great Walt Disney was at his zenith, ruling over what was (at least in his own head) still a family business. As a member of an esteemed acting family, she offers both her childhood impressions of the wild and glamorous world she was swept into, and the wisdom and broader knowledge that time has given her. -- adapted from jacket
