ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Although beloved actress Betty White is no longer with us, her life and career will be celebrated on Monday as planned on what would’ve been her 100th birthday.

The producers said they developed a great love and admiration for White during the many years they worked with her.
"We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the ‘luckiest broad on two feet’ to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long," they said.
The film, which runs 1 hour and 40 minutes, offers a "revealing glimpse" into the actress’ life, including behind-the-scenes on set, working with her office staff and entertaining at home.
