Descrizione libro Linden Press, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1984. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. Photographs and drawings (illustratore). 1st Edition. Here is the delightful memoir in words and pictures of artist, writer, director, and now raconteur par excellence Jean Negulesco. The author has been ¿ through luck, enterprise, and an overwhelming romanticism ¿ a part of our century's most vibrant cultural history, and now presents an uncensored peek into the private lives of the personalities he has known. Here then, are his loving recollections, written with an acute eye and a refreshing candor. We witness the last dance of Isadora Duncan ¿ fast and 40-ish, the shapeless muse transcends her ugliness and creates a miracle; the dinner parties of William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies; the mannerisms of Bette Davis and the valiancy of Marilyn Monroe; the profanity of Peter Lorre; the fiendish antics of Humphrey Bogart and the beloved tyranny of Jack L. Warner.There is a price sticker on the back of the jacket and a 1 inch long crayon mark on the bottom of the closed pages. Codice libro della libreria 000678
