Description - Tallulah by Tallulah Bankhead
In her own words the life of the inimitable actress known for her daring ways and distinctive voice - First published in 1952 and a best-seller for twenty-six weeks, Tallulah's literary voice is as lively as her legendary baritone was Famous for her snappy repartee, candid quotes, and scandalous lifestyle, Tallulah was one-of-a-kind. She was a favourite of the West End and Broadway stages in the 1920s, starred in a number of Paramount films, won an award for her leading role in Hitchcock's Lifeboat (1944), though never achieved the prominence in movies that she enjoyed on stage and radio. In Tallulah, she reminisces about her growing up, her dedication to the theatre, provides uproarious anecdotes about her life in Hollywood, New York, London, and much more.
