Twentieth century by Howard Hawks( Visual )

7 editions published between 1934 and 2005 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion piece to His Girl Friday is a hardboiled farce about theatrical personalities. Hecht and MacArthur's play, on which the script is based, is an irreverent screwball variant on the Svengali-Trilby story. The two lovers live life and respond to each other as if on a stage. The gamut of human emotions is a pretext for play acting. Full of feigned sentimentality, the film parodies the egotism of actors. The pairing of the 'great ham' Barrymore and the mercurial Lombard was a casting coup. Barrymore is ideally suited to the role of the egomaniac producer, a roaring caricature of theatrical drive and temperament

My story by Marilyn Monroe( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in French and English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description
