Take the time to look at this book! The pictures of this Stage and Hollywood legend are phenomenal, but the story of her life is both amazing and tragic.

A great biography of a Hollywood legend. After seeing her in her famous role as "Scarlet", I was hooked. She had quite a life on and off stage. If your a fan, this is a great pick.
