Praise For A Life of Barbara Stanwyck

  1. ?eoeWhat you have done is extraordinary. It is an amazing book, brilliantly written enhancing the whole life, Barbara?e(TM)s life, happenings around her?e"people of the industry, people in the theater and in politics. The way you have shown her life to include other situations, all that you interject . . . it makes her life, to me, more historically important. My father fell in love with Barbara after he saw her in?Ladies of Leisure. He loved to go to the opera and to the movies and the only star he talked about was Barbara Stanwyck. He used to say she was an incredible actress. And she was. She really was. You have brought her wonderful career magnificently to life, and as her friend, I thank you.?e

-Nancy Sinatra, Sr., Barbara Stanwyck?e(TM)s closest friend
