Her other films include The Singing Nun (1966), Divorce American Style
Divorce American Style
(1967), What's the Matter with Helen? (1971), Charlotte's Web (1973), Mother (1996) (Golden Globe nomination), and In & Out (1997). Reynolds was also a cabaret performer. In 1979, she founded the Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds
Dance Studio in North Hollywood, which still operates today.[3] In 1969, she starred on television in The Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds
Show, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. In 1973, Reynolds starred in a Broadway revival of the musical Irene and was nominated for the Tony Award
Tony Award
for Best Lead Actress in a Musical. She was also nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her performance in A Gift of Love (1999) and an Emmy Award for playing Grace's mother Bobbi on Will & Grace. At the turn of the millennium, Reynolds reached a new younger generation with her role as Aggie Cromwell in Disney's Halloweentown series. In 1988, she released her autobiography titled, Debbie: My Life. In 2013, she released a second autobiography, Unsinkable: A Memoir.[4] Reynolds also had several business ventures, including ownership of a dance studio and a Las Vegas
Las Vegas
hotel and casino, and she was an avid collector of film memorabilia, beginning with items purchased at the landmark 1970 MGM auction. She served as president of The Thalians, an organization dedicated to mental health causes.[1] Reynolds continued to perform successfully on stage, television, and film into her eighties. In January 2015, Reynolds received the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.[1] In 2016, she received the Academy Awards Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.[5] In the same year, a documentary about her life was released titled Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, which turned out to be her final film appearance; the film premiered on HBO
on January 7, 2017.[6][7] On December 28, 2016, Reynolds was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following a medical emergency, which her son Todd Fisher later described as a "severe stroke".[8] She died from the stroke that afternoon, one day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher.[9][10]

Early life[edit] Reynolds was born on April 1, 1932, in El Paso, Texas, to Maxene "Minnie" (née Harman) and Raymond Francis "Ray" Reynolds, a carpenter who worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad.[11] She was of Scottish-Irish and English ancestry[12] and was raised in a strict Nazarene church. She had a brother two years her senior.[13] Reynolds was a Girl Scout, once saying that she wanted to die as the world's oldest living Girl Scout.[14] Reynolds was also a member of The International Order of Job's Daughters, now called Job's Daughters International.[citation needed] Her mother took in laundry for income, while they lived in a shack on Magnolia Street in El Paso.[13] "We may have been poor," she said in a 1963 interview, "but we always had something to eat, even if Dad had to go out on the desert and shoot jackrabbits."

One of the advantages of having been poor is that you learn to appreciate good fortune and the value of a dollar, and poverty holds no fear for you because you know you've gone through it and you can do it again...But we were always a happy family and a religious one. And I'm trying to inculcate in my children the same sense of values, the same tone that my mother gave to me.[13]

Her family moved to Burbank, California
in 1939.[15] When Reynolds was a sixteen-year-old student at Burbank High School in 1948, she won the Miss Burbank beauty contest.[15] Soon after, she had a contract with Warner Bros[15] and acquired the nickname "Debbie" via Jack L. Warner.[16] One of her closest high school friends said that she rarely dated during her teenage years in Burbank.

They never found her attractive in school. She was cute, but sort of tomboyish, and her family never had any money to speak of. She never dressed well or drove a car. And, I think, during all the years in school, she was invited to only one dance.[13]

Reynolds agreed, saying that "when I started, I didn't even know how to dress. I wore dungarees and a shirt. I had no money, no taste and no training."[17] Her friend adds:

I say this in all sincerity. Debbie can serve as an inspiration to all young American womanhood. She came up the hard way, and she has a realistic sense of values based on faith, love, work and money. Life has been kind to her because she has been kind to life. She's a young woman with a conscience, which is something rare in Hollywood actresses. She also has a refreshing sense of honesty.[13]

Career[edit] Film and television[edit] Reynolds was first discovered by talent scouts from Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
and MGM who were at the 1948 Miss Burbank contest. Both companies wanted her to sign up with their studio and had to flip a coin to see which one got her. Warner won the coin toss, and she was with the studio for two years.[18] When Warner Brothers stopped producing musicals, she moved to MGM. With MGM, Reynolds regularly appeared in movie musicals during the 1950s and had several hit records during the period. Her song "Aba Daba Honeymoon" (featured in the film Two Weeks with Love
Two Weeks with Love
(1950) and sung as a duet with co-star Carleton Carpenter) was the first soundtrack recording to become a top-of-the-chart gold record, reaching number three on the Billboard charts.[19]

Her performance in the film greatly impressed the studio, which then gave her a co-starring role in what would become her highest-profile film, Singin' in the Rain
Singin' in the Rain
(1952), a satire on movie making in Hollywood
during the transition from silent to sound pictures.[18] It co-starred Gene Kelly, whom she called a "great dancer and cinematic genius," adding, "He made me a star. I was 18 and he taught me how to dance and how to work hard and be dedicated."[20] In 1956, she appeared in Bundle of Joy with her then-husband, Eddie Fisher.[21] Her starring role in The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964) led to a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.[22] Reynolds noted, however, that she initially had issues with its director, Charles Walters. "He didn't want me," she said. "He wanted Shirley MacLaine," who at the time was unable to take the role. "He said 'You are totally wrong for the part." But six weeks into production, he reversed his opinion. "He came to me and said, "I have to admit that I was wrong. You are playing the role really well. I'm pleased."[23] Reynolds also played in Goodbye Charlie, a 1964 comedy film about a callous womanizer who gets his just reward. It was adapted from George Axelrod's play Goodbye, Charlie and also starred Tony Curtis
Tony Curtis
and Pat Boone. She next portrayed Jeanine Deckers in The Singing Nun (1966). In what Reynolds once called the "stupidest mistake of my entire career",[24] she made headlines in 1970 after instigating a fight with the NBC television network over cigarette advertising on her weekly television show. Although she was television's highest paid female performer at the time, she quit the show for breaking its contract:[24]

I was shocked to discover that the initial commercial aired during the premiere of my new series was devoted to a nationally advertised brand of cigarette (Pall Mall). I fully outlined my personal feelings concerning cigarette advertising ... that I will not be a party to such commercials which I consider directly opposed to health and well-being.[25]

When NBC explained to Reynolds that banning cigarette commercials from her show would be impossible, she kept her resolve. The show drew mixed reviews, but according to NBC, it captured about 42 percent of the nation's viewing audience. She said later she was especially concerned about the commercials because of the number of children watching the show.[26] She did quit doing the show after about a year, which she said had cost her about $2 million of lost income: "Maybe I was a fool to quit the show, but at least I was an honest fool. I'm not a phony or pretender. With me it wasn't a question of money but integrity. I'm the one who has to live with myself."[27] The dispute would have been rendered moot and in Reynolds' favor anyway had she not resigned; by 1971, the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act
Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act
(which had been passed into law before she left the show) would ban all radio and television advertising for tobacco products. Reynolds played the title role in the Hanna-Barbera
animated musical, Charlotte's Web in which she originated the song "Mother Earth and Father Time".[28] Reynolds continued to make other appearances in film and television. She played Helen Chappel Hackett's mother, Deedee Chappel, on an episode of Wings titled, "If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother," which originally aired on November 22, 1994.[29] From 1999 to 2006, she played Grace Adler's theatrical mother, Bobbi Adler, on the NBC sitcom Will & Grace,[30] which earned Reynolds her only Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series in 2000.[31] She played a recurring role in the Disney Channel Original Movie Halloweentown film series as Aggie Cromwell. Reynolds made a guest appearance as a presenter at the 69th Academy Awards in 1997.[32] In 2000, Reynolds took up a recurring voice role on the children's television program Rugrats, playing the grandmother of two of the characters. In 2001, she co-starred with Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor
and Shirley MacLaine in These Old Broads, a television movie written for her by her daughter, Carrie Fisher.[33] She had a cameo role as herself in the 2004 film Connie and Carla. In 2013, she appeared in Behind the Candelabra, as the mother of Liberace.[34] The actress appears with her daughter in Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher
Carrie Fisher
and Debbie Reynolds, a 2016 documentary about the very close relationship between the two.[35] It premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The television premiere was January 7, 2017, on HBO.[7] According to USA Today
USA Today
the film is "an intimate portrait of Hollywood
royalty ... [it] loosely chronicles their lives through interviews, photos, footage and vintage home movies... It culminates in a moving scene, just as Reynolds is preparing to receive the 2015 Screen Actors Guild
Screen Actors Guild
Life Achievement Award, which Fisher presented to her mom."[36] Music career and cabaret[edit] Her recording of the song "Tammy" (1957; from Tammy and the Bachelor), earned her a gold record,[37] and was the best-selling single by a female vocalist in 1957. It was number one for five weeks on the Billboard pop charts. In the movie (the first of the Tammy film series), she co-starred with Leslie Nielsen.[38] Reynolds also scored two other top-25 Billboard hits with "A Very Special
Love" (#20 in January 1958) and "Am I That Easy to Forget" (#25 in March 1960)—a pop-music version of a country-music hit made famous by Carl Belew
Carl Belew
(in 1959), Skeeter Davis
Skeeter Davis
(in 1960), and several years later by singer Engelbert Humperdinck.[39] In 1991, she released an album titled The Best of Debbie Reynolds.[40]

For ten years, she headlined for about three months a year in Las Vegas's Riviera Hotel. She enjoyed live shows even though that type of performing "was extremely strenuous," she said.

With a performing schedule of two shows a night, seven nights a week, it's probably the toughest kind of show business. But in my opinion, the most rewarding. I like the feeling of being able to change stage bits and business when I want. You can't do that in motion pictures or TV.[41]

As part of her nightclub act, Reynolds was noted for doing impressions of celebrities such as Eva and Zsa Zsa Gabor, Mae West, Barbra Streisand, Phyllis Diller, and Bette Davis. Her impersonation of Davis was inspired following their co-starring roles in the 1956 film, The Catered Affair.[27] Reynolds had started doing stage impersonations as a teenager; her impersonation of Betty Hutton
Betty Hutton
was performed as a singing number during the Miss Burbank contest in 1948.[27] Reynolds' last album was a Christmas record with Donald O'Connor entitled Chrissy the Christmas Mouse.[42] Stage work[edit]

With limited film and television opportunities coming her way, Reynolds accepted an opportunity to make her Broadway debut.[43] She starred in the 1973 revival of Irene, a musical first produced 60 years before.[43] When asked why she waited so long to appear in a Broadway play, she explained:

Primarily because I had two children growing up. I could make movies and recordings and play in nearby Las Vegas
Las Vegas
and handle a television series without being away from them. Now, they are well on the way to being adults. Also, there was the matter of being offered a show that I felt might be right for me ... I felt that Irene was it and now was the time.[44]

Reynolds and her daughter Carrie both made their Broadway debut in the play.[44] The production broke records for the highest weekly gross of any musical.[43] For that production, she received a Tony nomination. Reynolds also starred in a self-titled Broadway revue, Debbie, in 1976.[45] She toured with Harve Presnell in Annie Get Your Gun,[46] then wrapped up the Broadway run of Woman of the Year
Woman of the Year
in 1983.[47] In the late 1980s Reynolds repeated her role as Molly Brown in the stage version of The Unsinkable Molly Brown, first opposite Presnell (repeating his original Broadway and movie role)[46] and later with Ron Raines.[48]

In 2010, she appeared in her own West End show Debbie Reynolds: Alive and Fabulous.[51] Film history preservation[edit] Reynolds amassed a large collection of movie memorabilia, beginning with items from the landmark 1970 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
auction, and she displayed them, first in a museum at her Las Vegas
Las Vegas
hotel and casino during the 1990s[52] and later in a museum close to the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. On several occasions, she auctioned off items from the collection. The museum was to relocate to be the centerpiece of the Belle Island Village tourist attraction in the resort city of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, but the developer went bankrupt.[53][54] The museum filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy[55] in June 2009. The most valuable asset of the museum was Reynolds' collection.[53] Todd Fisher, Reynolds' son, announced that his mother was "heartbroken" to have to auction off the collection.[53] It was valued at $10.79 million in the bankruptcy filing.[54] The Los Angeles
Los Angeles
auction firm Profiles in History was given the responsibility of conducting a series of auctions.[56] Among the "more than 3500 costumes, 20,000 photographs, and thousands of movie posters, costume sketches, and props" included in the sales were Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat and Marilyn Monroe's white "subway dress", whose skirt is lifted up by the breeze from a passing subway train in the film The Seven Year Itch
The Seven Year Itch
(1955).[56] The dress sold for $4.6 million in 2011;[57] the final auction was held in May 2014.[58] Business ventures[edit] In 1979, Reynolds opened her own dance studio in North Hollywood. In 1983 she released an exercise video, Do It Debbie's Way!.[59] She purchased the Clarion Hotel and Casino, a hotel and casino in Las Vegas, in 1992. She renamed it the Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds
Hotel. It was not a success. In 1997, Reynolds was forced to declare bankruptcy.[60] In June 2010, she replaced Ivana Trump

Reynolds and Eddie Fisher on their wedding day, 1955

Reynolds was married three times. Her first marriage was to singer Eddie Fisher in 1955.[62] They became the parents of Carrie (1956–2016) and Todd Fisher (1958). The couple divorced in 1959 when Fisher had an affair with Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor
shortly after the death of Taylor's husband Mike Todd; Taylor and Reynolds were good friends at the time. The Eddie Fisher – Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor
affair was a great public scandal, which led to the cancellation of Eddie Fisher's television show.[63] In 2011, Reynolds was on The Oprah Winfrey Show
The Oprah Winfrey Show
just weeks before Elizabeth Taylor's death. She explained that she and Taylor happened to be traveling at the same time on the ocean liner Queen Elizabeth some time in the late 1960s or early 1970s when they reconciled.[64] Reynolds sent a note to Taylor's room, and Taylor sent a note in reply asking to have dinner with Reynolds and end their feud. As Reynolds described it, "we had a wonderful evening with a lot of laughs."[65] In 1972, she noted the bright side of the divorce and her remarriage:

Now in retrospect, though it was not my will, I think it probably was the best thing that ever happened to me. He did give me two great children and for that I will ever be grateful. Our door is always open to him. I believe in peaceful coexistence and being friends with the father of your children.[27]

Life is both faith and love. Without faith, love is only one dimensional and incomplete. Faith helps you to overlook other people's shortcomings, and love them as they are. If you ask too much of any relationship, you can't help but be disappointed. But if you ask nothing, you can't be hurt or disappointed.

Reynolds' second marriage, to millionaire businessman Harry Karl, lasted from 1960 to 1973.[64] For a period during the 1960s, she stopped working at the studio on Friday afternoons to attend Girl Scout meetings, since she was the leader of the Girl Scout
Girl Scout
Troop of which her 13-year-old daughter Carrie and her stepdaughter Tina Karl, also 13, were members.[66] Reynolds later found herself in financial difficulty because of Karl's gambling and bad investments.[1] Reynolds' third marriage was to real estate developer Richard Hamlett from 1984 to 1996. In 2011, Reynolds stepped down after 56 years of involvement in The Thalians,[67] a charitable organization devoted to children and adults with mental health issues. Reynolds was hospitalized in October 2012 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles

due to an adverse reaction to medication. She canceled appearances and concert engagements for the next three months.[68] Death and legacy[edit]

dies, one day after daughter's death

On December 23, 2016, Reynolds's daughter—actress and writer Carrie Fisher—suffered a medical emergency on a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles, and died on December 27 at the age of 60.[69] The following day, December 28, Reynolds was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
in Los Angeles, after suffering a "severe stroke," according to her son, Todd Fisher.[70] Later that afternoon, Reynolds was pronounced dead in the hospital; she was 84 years old.[71][72][73] On January 9, 2017, her cause of death was determined to be intracerebral hemorrhage, with hypertension a contributing factor.[74] Todd later said Reynolds had been seriously impacted by her daughter's death, and grief was partially responsible for her stroke, noting that his mother had stated "I want to be with Carrie" shortly before she died.[75][76][77] During an interview for the December 30, 2016 airing of the ABC-TV program 20/20, Todd elaborated on this, saying that his mother had joined his sister in death because Reynolds "didn't want to leave Carrie and did not want her to be alone."[78] He added, however, that "she didn't die of a broken heart" as some news reports had implied, but rather "just left to be with Carrie."[79] Reynolds was entombed while Carrie was cremated,[80] however, a portion of Fisher's ashes were laid to rest beside Reynolds's crypt at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood
Hills, during a larger joint memorial service held on March 25,[81][82] while the remainder of Carrie's ashes are held in a giant, novelty Prozac pill.[83] Awards and honors[edit] Reynolds was the 1955 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.[84] Her foot and handprints are preserved at Grauman's Chinese Theatre
Grauman's Chinese Theatre
in Hollywood, California. She also has a star on the Hollywood
Walk of Fame, at 6654 Hollywood
Boulevard, for live performance and a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars dedicated to her.[85] In keeping with the celebrity tradition of the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival of Winchester, Virginia, Reynolds was honored as the Grand Marshal of the 2011 ABF that took place from April 26 to May 1, 2011.[86] On November 4, 2006, Reynolds received the Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award from Chapman University
Chapman University
(Orange, California).[87][88] On May 17, 2007, she was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from the University of Nevada, Reno, where she had contributed for many years to the film studies program.[89]
