In 2016 we lost a treasure for Patty Duke died unexpectedly She was an actor who had won an Oscar and three Emmy Awards plus a host of Golden Globes and other accolades during her career She was a political activist who served a term as president of the Screen Actors’ Guild She was a humanitarian giving of herself to numerous causes She was a birth mother of two boys who became successful actors in their own rights and the adoptive mother of three boys And for over half of her life she suffered from manic depression a condition we call bipolar today It was not until a psychiatrist finally diagnosed her condition and prescribed Lithium did she “even out” and stop the many destructive acts she had been doing her own life Call Me Anna the Autobiography of Patty Duke tells of her life warts and all And we get a sense that she was a good mother a caring person and a consummate actor A strange and upsetting childhood yielded a full career in acting and despite all the things she endured as a child—and they are all here in this book—she is grateful to the managersmarried couple The Rosses who steered her early career a career that lead to a groundbreaking portrayal of Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker and to becoming the youngest Oscar winner up until that time despite all the Rosses’ abuses of her The book was published in 1987 and thus accounts for only a little over half of her life It ends with a marriage and unlike her other marriages that one lasted until her death She spent her later years in Idaho living a simple life with her husband occasionally acting on Broadway and films and participating in community theater Her son Sean upon her death reported she was happiest when she was acting and mentoring young actors It would be wonderful to hear a detailed account of her last thirty years years in which she was at her happiest And oh how I wish I had been a member of that community theater Despite her awards she never achieved the star status of Meryl Streep and her ilk but Patty Duke was a treasure nonetheless to those of us who were her fans and to her family and those she helped This is an inspiring autobiography Co written with journalist Kenneth Turan I was surprised at the overwhelming comma errors the comma splice being the most glaring Duke herself was pretty much self educated but having a “ghost writer” was supposed to guarantee such glaring grammar errors wouldn’t be present And of course both of the authors should have had an editor to catch all that I say “shame shame editor”
