Were the greatest mother-daughter act in the history of show business. Each became a world-class symbol of the social and cinematic tastes that prevailed during their heydays in Hollywood. Now, for the first time, fans of Princess Leia and Unsinkable Tammy can read about the combative but ferociously loyal relationship of the "boop-boopa-doop" girl with her inter-galactic daughter, and the iron-willed strength each of them demonstrated during their battles to survive. This exposé from two of the most talked-about celebrity biographers in publishing is the ultimate conversation-starter for savvy matriarchs transmitting insights about love and lifestyles to their daughters or granddaughters. Loaded with never-before published revelations about "who was doing what to whom" during the final gasps of Golden Age Hollywood, it's a one-of-a-kind, All-American saga about the price of glamour, career-related pain, family anguish, romantic betrayals, lingering guilt, and the volcanic shifts that affected a scrappy, wryly funny mother-daughter team -and everyone else who ever loved the movies.
