Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds and her daughter, Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher, had an indelible bond in life-and in death.
Living together as next-door neighbors in Beverly Hills, the women were a constant presence in each other's daily lives. "At the one end of the family compound lived Debbie Reynolds, star of Singin' in the Rain, with Dorothy's red slippers from The Wizard of Oz on the mantelpiece," said Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom, who directed the new HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds and shared written memories exclusively with People for this week's cover story. "Adjacent was Princess Leia, in a house where Bette Davis once lived. You don't get more Hollywood royalty than that. Storytelling magic lived around them."
