Eva Le Gallienne : a biography by Helen Sheehy( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We see Le Gallienne's childhood in London and Paris with her bohemian parents: her Danish mother, a feminist, journalist, and follower of Ibsen and Brandes; and her estranged father, the slightly successful but thoroughly selfish English poet and writer Richard Le Gallienne ... her early years as an actor, her triumphs with Barrymore and Basil Rathbone, Joseph Schildkraut, Alla Nazimova, and others. We see the extraordinary women who were drawn to her work and supported it - among them Eleonora Sears, socialite and champion tennis, polo, and squash player; Alice De Lamar, philanthropist; and Mary Curtis Bok Zimbalist, heir to the Curtis Publishing Company. And we see the many women whom she chose to love openly and who loved her back. Using Le Gallienne's diaries, letters, and notes, and interviewing more than 150 of her friends, lovers, acquaintances, and family, Helen Sheehy has brought this complex artist brilliantly alive. Her book is a revelation of the actor's life and work
