Ecstasy and Me is the tell-all style autobiography of Austrian-born actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr, co-written with Leo Guild and Cy Rice and first published in 1966. According to biographer Stephen Michael Shearer, author of Beautiful: The Life of Hedy Lamarr, the actress approved the ghostwritten book before she read it and "most of it is fiction."[citation needed] Lamarr condemned the book's contents as "fictional, false, vulgar, scandalous, libelous and obscene."[1] She made a public television appearance on the Merv Griffin Show where she said "that's not my book" and mentions writing a book called "Hedy".
