When she was only 19 years old, Debbie Reynolds sang and danced with Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor on screen in the classic movie musical, “Singing in the Rain.” It was 1952, and it launched Debbie Reynolds as a worldwide star of stage and screen.

Debbie’s daughter Carrie Fisher followed in her footsteps into the movies. We know her best as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, but she’s been in many films and has written several books.

In late December 2016 – in a startling chain of events - both Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher died within 24 hours of each other.

The lives of Debbie and Carrie were intertwined with that of Todd Fisher. It's hard to imagine a family that was closer. Todd,  the son of Debbie and the sister of Carrie, has written a memoir titled, "My Girls: A Lifetime  with Carrie and Debbie."
