Rocking Horse: A Personal Biography of Betty Hutton, by Gene Arceri

At the top she made millions¾at the bottom she scrubbed floors in a parish priest house.  All the while she made headlines around the world.  What really happened?  There was never a more boisterous or vivacious movie star than Betty Hutton.  Her 1940s Big Band hit recordings demonstrated a boundless vocal range from zany romps to tear-stained ballads. During the 40's and 50's she bulldozed her way in Hollywood with spirit, spunk, good humor and a string of hits, from a singing Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun to a high flying trapeze artist in The Greatest Show On Earth.  Now, through recorded interviews, Betty tells her story from her own point of view.  Often misinterpreted, misquoted or fictionalized, it is the story of one of the most popular Hollywood performers of her generation¾ told by the one who lived it!
