New York: Appleton-Century. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1964). First Edition. Hardcover. [nice clean copy, minimal shelfwear, spine very slightly turned; jacket shows a little surface wear, additional slight bumping/wear around top of spine]. (B&W photographs) One of the first reasonably serious biographies of La Liz, by a well-connected Hollywood journalist -- a one-time editor of Photoplay Magazine, who wound up on the staff of the famous (and dreaded) columnist Louella Parsons. This book (it sez here) was "based on [her] long acquaintance with the star, dating back to her film debut -- at the age of ten -- in LASSIE COME HOME. The result is an intimate, informed, yet always objective and fair portrait of a rare human being, revealing the basic underlying patterns of her controversial and unconventional life." .
