“Through a diary that renders a broad history of society as well as the details of popular culture, she initiates us to her remarkable career as an ebullient entertainer. This publication is a vital contribution to the inquiry around film and women, surely, but also to the annals of crime and fatal affection.” – Patrick Flores
