He was the all-time all-American virility symbol, perhaps the most successful male actor of his time, the acknowledged "King" of Hollywood in the hungry 1930s; she was the great all-American sex symbol, a tough-talking, beautiful blonde at the height of stardom, "America's Madcap Playgirl #1." He was separated from his wife; she had divorced William Powell ("The son of a bitch is acting even when he takes his pajamas off!") and was recovering from the death of her friend Russ Columbo, accidentally shot in one of Hollywood's more bizarre and notorious scandals. They fell in love in 1936 (a leap year) at the full-dress White Mayfair Hollywood society ball. Until then, she had thought him stuffy; he had objected to her profane language and boisterous public behavior. The next day she had a pair of doves sneaked into his hotel room while he slept, and before long they were obviously, publicly, happily in love, to the pleasure of several million fans and the rage of Louis B. Mayer, Gable's boss, who feared a scandal. Soon they were living together, and America's number one blonde bombshell was learning to hunt, ride, shoot and fish, while Gable sweated out his divorce and suffered through the skirmishing that preceded the filming of Gone With the Wind, worrying about a role he found uncomfortable, but which was to crown his reputation. Together, they make for a book that is lusty, funny, and full of the glittering gossip and real-life tragedy that occur only in Hollywood lives. This book is the story of two otherwise quite ordinary American kids who somehow grew up to become Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, fell in love, married, and lived happily until the day in 1942 when Lombard was killed in a plane crash, plunging the United States into a mourning that eclipsed the war news and leaving Gable a lonely man whose last wish was to be buried beside his beloved Carole. Packed with anecdotes about famous stars, famous houses, famous movies, and famous parties, Gable and Lombard is at once a triumph of nostalgia and a brilliant retelling of romantic legend that seemed to many Americans of the time more real than life itself--and more romantic than the movies--but which was, in fact, simply a love story.--Adapted from dust jacket

Audrey Hepburn : a biography by Warren G Harris( Recording )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with her harsh childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, Warren Harris chronicles Audrey Hepburn's meteoric rise to Hollywood stardom: her chance encounter with Colette that led to the lead role in the Broadway version of Gigi, and her first starring role in Roman Holiday, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Hepburn played opposite the top leading men, worked for the best directors, and picked from a wide range of roles. She memorably embodied Truman Capote's Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and went from rags to Technicolor Victorian beauty in "My fair lady." Warren Harris also traces Hepburn's affairs and unhappy marriages, as well as her later work as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Throughout the book he illuminates her special ability to exude grace and style, both on screen and off

2 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born an illegitimate child in Fascist Italy, Sophia Loren grew up a sickly and undernourished girl who blossomed into one of the world's great beauties. After her screen debut as a teenager, she made several movies in Italy that left directors impressed with her stunning looks and range of emotion. But it was her Oscar-winning performance in Two women in 1960--under the tutelage of the great Italian director Vittorio DeSica--that made Sophia Loren an international star. Whether he is describing her impoverished childhood, discussing the making of her early films (such as The Pride and the Passion, when costar Cary Grant was smitten with her), or examining her enduring love affair with Italian producer Carlo Ponti, to whom she has been married for nearly 40 years, Harris gives depth to his portrait, with many new facts about Loren's personal life
