In 1959, no young actress shone brighter than Sandra Dee, the star of Gidget and A Summer Place, two of the year's biggest hits. But behind the scenes, Sandra was being controlled by her overzealous stage mother Mary, who turned a blind eye to the abuse her daughter suffered as a child and tried to stop Sandra's 1960 marriage to singer Bobby Darin. Closer reveals the real story of Sandra's tragic life, early death and the greatest joy of her later years. Also inside: Comedian Buddy Hackett's son shares stories of his father's legendary parties; dispelling the myths about The Wizard of Oz; and a close up look on Hollywood's favorite celebrity best friends.
