Description


This visual salute to the First Lady of Television spans Betty White’s more than 80-year career as a performer and star of such legendary series as The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls.

Chronicling 100 highlights from the acting life and passions that have defined an entertainment career like no other, Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life - 2nd Edition includes:

  • A foreword by actor Gavin MacLeod, who was part of The Mary Tyler Moore Show cast with Betty White
  • Over 100 photographs from her decades in comedy as well as a guest on shows including What’s My Line?, Password, To Tell the Truth, Match Game, and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
  • Interviews with friends and colleagues, such as Carol Burnett and Candice Bergen
  • To complete her incredible story, a Tribute and Farewell in memory of her lengthy legacy 


White’s pioneering legacy extends back to the earliest days of TV in the 1950s, when she served as both producer and star of the sitcom Life with Elizabeth during an era that predated glass ceilings. The volume also vividly illustrates the beloved White’s lifelong love for animals as well as the masterful comic versatility she displayed even as she closed in on the century mark.

Betty White passed away on December 31, 2021, at just 17 days shy of what would have been her 100th birthday. This retrospective tribute to the trailblazing icon will help us hold Betty White, and all the good she stood for, forever in our memories.

Revel in Betty White’s talent, elegance, and spunk with this photographic retrospective of her life.
