Editorial Reviews

Her great flashing dark eyes, her exaggerated 1950s high-fashion makeup and, above all, her dramatic mid-career weight loss generated dozens of unforgettable images in studio and candid photographs. These photos, along with a number of fascinating lesser-known ones of the diva, are anthologized in a lavish coffee table book.
