Trailer for Wishful Drinking.
In Wishful Drinking, Fisher details her complicated yet eclectic extended family tree in Hollywood Inbreeding 101, employing a blackboard and wooden pointer. Her father Eddie Fisher s very public affair with Elizabeth Taylor ended what had been perceived and celebrated as a storybook marriage, and she and her brother Todd later watched both her mother s and father s once white-hot bright star of celebrity slowly dim, cool and fade. In 1973, at her mother s urging, the 17-year-old Fisher enrolled at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London; two years later, her life changed forever when she donned a white dress as Princess Leia in George Lucas Star Wars.
