Featuring film clips, footage from 1940s home movies and blow-by-blow personal anecdotes, Crawford, whose memoir was the basis for the 1981 film of the same name, recounts the abuse that she endured in her life, discusses her road to recovery and takes questions from the audience in the 90-minute presentation.
