9780982770962: All That Glitters: a Play in Three Acts

In 1928, searching for a career out of Hollywood, Natacha Rambova wrote a play called "All that Glitters". This play showed her hatred for Hollywood and the pain she felt as a movie star's wife (she was married to Rudolph Valentino for a few years). However, Natacha's film foray (which she was very upset over her eventual portrayal) and stage work did not live up to her expectations. She never produced or published this play. For years it was unknown whether the text existed. But here, Theodosia Tramp Publishing, is proud to present it for the first time. Whether you are a fan of Rambova, curious about what tidbits she'll divulge, or wishing to produce this script as a play or film, you will be pleased with this publication! Set in the Lavish 1920s, 20 something Henry dreams of living a lavish life with his wife Alice. One night working at a movie theatre, Henry is spotted by a group of film stars who declare he 'has it' and he should come in for a film test. He does and promptly rises to stardom. While Henry enjoys the good life, his wife is left to suffer and clean up his messes. Henry's arrogance soon overtakes his career. The good times are over. Or are they?
