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

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 578 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

Captured on film : the true story of Marion Davies( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Blonde, beautiful and talented, Marion Davies was the first and funniest screwball comedienne. As star of two of the best comedies ever made, Show People and The Patsy, she combined zany slapstick and exuberant mimicry. Glamorous, witty and kind, both on screen and off, Davies was also famous for her 35-year-long love affair with William Randolph Hearst. Unfortunately, Davies has too often been remembered for a film in which she never appeared: Citizen Kane. Orson Welles may have based his great film on the life of Hearst, but Davies was never like the character of Susan Alexander. Loving and insightful, and narrated by Charlize Theron, Captured on Film: The True Story of Marion Davies combines archival film clips, interviews and rare home movies to explore her life and work. The Brooklyn-born Davies was dancing in the Ziegfeld Follies when she first met Hearst, who went on to build her a movie studio and a castle - the legendary estate in San Simeon where she reigned over the elite of Hollywood. A wonderful, moving tribute to this Hollywood legend, this is a documentary to own and cherish. A bonus feature on this video is Davies' brilliant performance in the rarely seen classic Quality Street!
