Are there any memoirs or autobiographies of actors you know of?

I'm very interested in reading about them. Preferably historical accounts.

    Assuming actresses count, I recommend Pauline Collins' "Letter to Louise". It's mostly about being a struggling actress in the 1960's, and then, as an unwed mother, giving up her daughter for adoption. I bought a (signed!) copy because I'm a fan, but had low expectations for a book written by an actress. However, I was very pleasantly surprised, and found it quite good.

    Home by Julie Andrews is a great read. It's about the first 30 years or so of her amazing life, I learnt a lot about her that I didn't know.
