She was considered one of America’s brightest young stars almost from the moment she entered show business in the mid 1950s.
And over the next few decades, Shirley MacLaine fulfilled that promise in a big way. She has won, or been nominated for, dozens of awards, including an Oscar, and Emmy, and several Golden globes.
She was also associated with the famous rat pack, which included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr.
And then in the mid-1980s, Shirley MacLaine acquired a whole new kind of fame, when she became a well-known authority on the metaphysical, and past lives and reincarnation
For some her pronouncements became father for ridicule, but many people accepted her beliefs and embraced them.
Her 1987 book. It’s All In The Playing was a candid active self-reflection and a deeper exploration of her metaphysical beliefs.
As she shepherded me carefully through my sometimes awkward questions, MacLaine helped us all better understand
So here now, from 1987, shirley McClain.
Shirley MacLaine will be 90 in April./
