In the pantheon of Hollywood's great triple-threat performers, you can count Debbie Reynolds, who has been acting, singing and dancing for nearly 65 years. Launched to stardom at age 19 by appearing in the classic "Singin' in the Rain," the Oscar-nominated actress enjoyed international success in the movies and TV, on the Broadway stage, and in Las Vegas revues -- and endured public humiliation from her broken marriage to crooner Eddie Fisher, losing him to her friend Elizabeth Taylor.
2013 saw the release of the 80-year-old Reynolds' memoir, "Unsinkable" (William Morrow), which recounts her incredible, bumpy road to Hollywood fame. "I'm not a person that cries a lot," Reynolds told Mo Rocca. "What is it people say? I cry at a good steak. Well, I don't cry at a good steak. But I sure do cry for all the lucky things I've had happen to me."
