Rubbing Elbows A to Z is a fun stroll down the memory lane of late-twentieth century pop culture. Author Aldine King, a professional actress for twenty years, recounts the thrill of working with her childhood TV heroes, including Robert Young (Father Knows Best), Raymond Burr (Perry Mason) and Robert Stack (The Untouchables); meeting music royalty like Berry Gordy and Quincy Jones; and pinch-me moments in the presence of film legends like Lana Turner and Jack Lemmon. King shares 118 anecdotes of amusing and poignant encounters that cystallize moments in time and touch on topics such as race, gender and image. Collectively, these stories narrate the author's peripatetic life's journey through six states, in and out of show business, and across seven decades.
