MY LIFE WITH LIZA MINNELLI _ 1968 - 2009 by DUSTIN PITTMAN
I can't believe that I have known and photographed Liza Minnelli for over 40 years. We met in Upstate New York on the set of "The Sterile Cuckoo", a film that scored her a nomination for an Oscar. She played the part of Pookie Adams, an oddball, quirky teenager who falls in love despite major differences. This role scored her an Oscar nomination at the age of 23. During the film, Liza was married to the great Australian songwriter and entertainer, Peter Allen. I would see them in between takes holding hands and laughing like little children. Later in New York, at Halston's townhouse, Studio 54 or Regine's, we would talk about special moments from the past. Liza's non-stop shows have had audiences coming back for more for decades. It is the ultimate experience. She is truly one of the great performers of all time.
We love Liza..........
