More than a woman : an intimate biography of Bette Davis by James Spada( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"She was one of Hollywood's greatest stars and perhaps its finest actress. But the screen legend whose stunning performances still have the power to move audiences today lived a life that rivaled the plot of any movie she ever made - a life steeped in triumphs and tragedies, sex and scandals, betrayal and heartache, violence and mystery." "After three years of research and more than one hundred fifty interviews, acclaimed author James Spada has written a fascinating and unforgettable biography, the first truly definitive life of Bette Davis - revealing the brash, uncompromising woman, the tortured artist, the sexually needy lover, the betrayed mother, and the lost, frightened child behind the superstar." "As he did in his ground-breaking biographies of Grace Kelly and Peter Lawford, James Spada has persuaded Bette Davis's relatives, friends, and colleagues to speak out for the first time, and he has gained new access to court documents, suppressed inquest transcripts, and personal correspondence to paint a riveting portrait of one of the most complex, volatile, passionate, and misrepresented women in Hollywood history." "More Than a Woman reveals for the first time the devastating impact on Bette of her father's desertion when she was eight; her oddly close relationship with her mother; her terror of inheriting the family strain of mental illness; her cruel overshadowing of her adoring, mentally unbalanced sister; her massive self-doubts even as she forged her way into a Hollywood career; her numerous, tempestuous extramarital affairs; her ambivalent feelings about the sex act (revealed by a director and onetime lover)."

John and Caroline : their lives in pictures by James Spada( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They were the youngest children to live in the White House in over a century - Caroline just three and John Jr. a newborn when their father took the oath of office. Symbolizing the youthful vigor of the new administration, they won the hearts of the American people as they romped around - and under - their father's desk in the Oval Office. And when, three years later, Caroline kissed JKF's coffin and John Jr. saluted the passing bier, they were forever etched into the nations' collective heart. We see their awkward adolescence, their sorrows at senseless losses in the family, their first forays into romance, their efforts to establish themselves as responsible adults, their happy marriages and Caroline's motherhood. And we watch in admiration as Caroline recovers from the untimely death of her beloved brother to assume the mantle of the Camelot legend

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Streisand: In the Camera Eye is a collection of 170 of the most compelling photographs of Barbra Streisand, chosen for their rarity, beauty, and insight into Streisand's multifaceted life and career. The pictures, most of which have never been published before, document her many phases, from her early days on Broadway, including Funny Girl, to her hugely popular TV specials, to her work as an actress in films such as Hello, Dolly!, The Way We Were, and A Star Is Born. Taken by some of the greatest names in photography--including Philippe Halsman, Francesco Scavullo, Douglas Kirkland, Bob Willoughby, and Cecil Beaton--the images also represent her fabled concerts, as well as personal moments away from the set and stage. Seven essays by Spada introduce the various periods of Streisand's adult life, and, along with substantial anecdotal and quote-filled captions, they combine with the spectacular photos to tell the whole story of one of the world's most popular and beloved stars
