(Applause Books). Noted film biographer Charlotte Chandler interviewed Bette Davis extensively in the last decade of her life, resulting in a biography in which the great actress speaks for herself. Chandler also spoke with directors, actors, and others who knew and worked with Davis, and includes brief synopses of all of her theatrical films. Here are some more examples of Bette's wit to be found within these pages: "I'm the one who didn't get the man, which is the more interesting character on the screen, but in real life sometimes I wish I could just have been the girl who got the man, and kept him. I got four husbands and several lovers, but I didn't keep any of them. I was invited to the White House, but no man stayed to share my white cottage." "My favorite actor with whom I never played, professionally or personally, was Laurence Olivier. I admired everything about him. He was a great actor, and he was my dream man. Literally and figuratively. Larry was my fantasy lover, the perfect man, or at least I thought he would be. He was not only beautiful, but intelligent."

About the Author:

Charlotte Chandler is the author of three higly acclaimed books, HELLO, I MUST BE GOING: GROUCHO AND HIS FRIENDS, THE ULTIMATE SEDUCTION, and I, FELINI.

Review:

"The high price of success in show business often goes unnoticed unless a perceptive writer reveals it to us, as Charlotte Chandler has done in her remarkable books about Groucho Marx, Federico Fellini, Billy Wilder, and Alfred Hitchcock. Now, in "The Girl Who Walked Home Alone, Chandler reveals Bette Davis as a valiant, often misunderstood heroine of the real star wars."

--Sidney Sheldon
