Using primary sources and interviews, Fred Guiles provides the life behind the legend. He reveals what really happened in the careening career of the pretty waif named Norma Jean Mortensen, who married the boy next door, became a model, an actress, a movie star, married an incompatible legend named Joe DiMaggio, sought to improve the mind that came with her near-perfect body, married playwright Arthur Miller, lent herself to the Svengali-like ministrations of Paul and Lee Strasberg, became the mistress of John and then Robert Kennedy when they ran the country, kept camera crews and studios waiting but not Death, which took her under most unusual circumstances at the age of thirty-six

Joan Crawford : the last word by Fred Lawrence Guiles( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her heyday Joan Crawford was probably the most imitated woman in the world. Magazine covers featured her face, and high school and college girls copied her makeup and clothing. Her remarkable progression from silent films to talkies to television exemplified her ability to adapt, chameleonlike, to the ever-changing demands of the industry that in many senses invented her. Joan Crawford: The Last Word does not cloak the dark side of Crawford's nature. This unbiased account restores the much-needed balance between those who regard her as the monster depicted in Mommie Dearest and the truth about a legendary star
