About the Author:

William Donati is co-author, with Hollywood stuntman Buster Wiles, of My Days with Errol Flynn.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Even at an early age, Ida had a compulsion to dramatize. By seven she had developed "an awful phobia." She ripped up the oldest clothes she could find and, wearing the tatters, went from house to house begging, pitifully crying that she had been "starved and beaten at home." She later admitted: "I believed my own lies, so that others believed me."

On August 29, 1933, the Berengaria landed at Hoboken Docks in New Jersey. Ida was welcomed like a little queen. Paramount representatives met her with boquets and a shiny limousine. Ida and Connie were driven to the plush Waldorf Astoria. Ida was splashing in the marble bathtub when the telephone rang and she learned of a reception in her honor. Orchids were hurriedly pinned to a new dress and a publicist whispered to Ida that she was now sixteen years old. Reporters flocked to her suite, eager to meet Paramount's newest discovery.
