"…a pleasure to flick through. The biographical facts have a juicily gothic feel. The family and studio portraits of Bette meanwhile are a revelation.”
San Jose Mercury News, 11/25
“…what makes the book impossible to put down are the photos — gorgeous period images beautifully integrated into the text.”
Rage Monthly, November 2009
“This lush must-have coffee table book is big, luxurious and full of fascinating descriptions and stories befitting the Queen of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Gee, what a great holiday gift this would make!”
“a keeper: the text is crisp; the photos are magnificent. Lots of delicious anecdotes…”

I hope Running Press continues this lavish series. The Lana Turner entry (penned by her daughter, Cheryl Crane) is absolutely terrific. And I'll probably buy the Lucille Ball book in the series. But this book, sadly, is a DUD, despite the fine photographs inside (few of which seem to be very rare) I can not recommend it.
It's a steal for $10...go buy it now and add it to your collection!
