Description
Teri Garr discusses her book, “Speedbumps.” She begins by explaining that she began her career as a young dancer whose parents moved a great deal because of their careers in Vaudeville. She then shares that she received her first break in the film industry when she auditioned for her role in Mel Brook’s “Young Frankenstein.” Garr then goes into further detail about her work on “Young Frankenstein” and how she taught herself to speak with a German accent. She goes on to discuss her role in “Tootsie” and her Academy Award nomination. Garr then shares her memories of Elvis Presley from when she danced in his films early on in her career. Later in the interview she explores her struggles with multiple sclerosis, relationships, and motherhood.
