THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN ABOUT HOLLYWOOD HISTORY---PERIOD!
THIS BOOK ON BARBARA STANWYCK, by Victoria Wilson, will take you inside Hollywood history as never before. It's not so much that it's about Stanwyck, but wherever Stanwyck's story goes, Wilson takes the time to tell you about all the characters around her (you'll know them all); all the inside things about every movie (who didn't get the parts, who slept with whom, studio head fights, etc.)
It's a gigantic book that looks daunting. You may say to yourself, "Barbra Stanwyck was a good actress, but am I going to take the time to read a book that's 1044 pages inclduing the appendix?"
THE ANSWER IS --YES YOU ARE.
The book is only Volume 1!!!! It's is from 1907 to 1940. And I can't wait until Volume 2.
