Sobre o livro
This is classic Hollywood history as told through the life and career of one its most iconic actresses. The book benefits tremendously from the author's personal friendship with de Havilland, as well as his acquaintance with a pantheon of Hollywood royalty from the 30s, 40s, and 50s: John Huston, David O. Selznick, George Cukor, Jimmy Stewart, and even de Havilland's difficult sister Joan Fontaine. Superbly researched and full of delicious anecdotes about actors' seemingly endless tinsel town peccadillos, this book not only profiles one of the finest actresses of her time, but also the culture of the film industry's Golden Age. It is also a passionate love story of de Havilland's romantic relationships with Howard Hughes, Jimmy Stewart, John Huston, Errol Flynn, and Burgess Meredith, among others.
