8. BOOKS: Twitch Upon a Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery by Herbie J. Pilato
Most know Elizabeth Montgomery as the seriously cute Samantha Stevens on Bewitched, but the late actress lived a fascinating life. Not only was she and her second husband, Bewitched producer William Asher, good friends with President Kennedy, she was an activist. Montgomery was a staunch liberal who did charity work for AIDS, marched in a gay pride parade with her costar Dick Sargent, protested the Vietnam War, rallied for peace and advocated rights for the disabled. And, if you didn't notice, it was pretty important for the Bewitched producers to examine the roots of discrimination, even if it was toward those who practice witchcraft. At Amazon.
