    This is an exceptional documentary. I had never heard of Anita O'Day but was intrigued after reading the review in the NYTimes - was one of Stephen Holden's critic's picks. I was mesmerized and inspired by the life she lived. She was a true survivor in every sense of the word. The film was wonderfully made, the graphics and the music which accompanied Ms. O'Day's candid interviews really gave you a feel for the era. The film flew by and the performances left you wanting more.
