For any fan of the actresses of the films of the late 1920's and early 1930's, this is a must-read! I, of course, loved it for featuring my fave Norma Shearer, but I also learned plenty about several other stars (Garbo, Harlow, Crawford, Ruth Chatterton, Ginger Rogers, Marlene Dietrich, Mae Clark, Stanwyck, Loretta Young, Mae West, and on and on). Highly recommended!
