This reference traces in fascinating detail the exceptionally long career of Helen Hayes, the "First Lady of the American Theatre." In addition to a biography of the actress, which charts the development of her unique talent and the successes and tragedies of her personal life, the book supplies a chronology which provides quick access to the major events which shaped both her character and her career. In sections devoted individually to Stage, Film, Television, and Radio, the actress' work in each of these media is charted. Cast lists, plot synopses, reviews, and commentary bring vivid immediacy to these records. Additional material in the Appendices provides information on her aural/video recordings as well as her stunning list of Awards and Honors. Included is the program from a gala salute to her 50th Anniversary on the stage. A detailed index concludes the work.

Editorial Reviews

?It is unfortunate that the first lady of the American theatre died prior to publication of this book. Along with all theatre scholars, she would have been delighted with the depth and detail of its coverage; and, as she points out in her brief foreword, the book rectifies her failure to keep any scrapbooks or clippings similar to other volumes in the series, but at the same time, it is, undoubtedly, one of the best.?-Classic Images
