Synopses & Reviews


"Raised as the child of an army officer, petted and dressed by her mother, and taught to be the center of attention, Gloria Swanson was ready for stardom at an early age. Her story is inextricably woven into the history of films, but she transcends their glitter by her determination and independence. No holds are barred in the telling of her private life in this autobiography.
