Praise For…

"Perfect for an adult old-movie buff to share with a younger friend."—Kirkus Reviews

"Continues the magic found in A Is for Audra and B Is for Broadway. . . . Each page is a work of art that could stand alone as an homage to the featured actress. . . . A fun new addition for the biography section."—School Library Journal

"Included among the 'classic leading ladies' are such lesser-known figures as Lupe Vélez and Miyoshi Umeki, and helpful endnotes detail movies that the subjects appeared in. . . . a fun browse."Booklist
