Into it: Debbie Reynolds

... Reading?

I travel 42 weeks a year, so I'm always on the road. I buy a novel at every airport, usually a mystery. I love Stephen King – I think he's quite fabulous. I love Dr. Wayne Dwyer because he has words of wisdom to pass on. I have "The Innocent Man" by John Grisham. I haven't read it, I just bought it because I thought I'd enjoy it.

... Listening to?

I'm a big fan of Steve Tyrell, who's a new young singer. We're going to see him tomorrow night here – he's working at a club. I like live music. I play Tony Bennett and I play Frank Sinatra. I like Diana Krall, Sarah Vaughan, and Lena Horne – I rather live in the past!

... Watching?

I mostly watch the news, to tell you the truth. I have many old movies I watch – Pride and Prejudice, the original one. Dark Victory with Bette Davis and For Whom the Bell Tolls. I'm traveling, so I'm limited in what I get to see. Capote was a very fine film. I saw The Departed and I thought the performances were wonderful. [The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences] send me all the [nominated] pictures. My daughter [Carrie Fisher] comes down and snitches all my films from me!

Debbie Reynolds spoke to the Monitor on Feb. 22. Her touring revue, which includes musical numbers, will be in Lancaster, Pa., March 18; and Waltham, Mass., April 20-22. Visit debbiereynolds.com for more tour dates.
