Lillian Lorraine : The Life and Times of a Ziegfeld Diva Paperback / softback

Description

After a meteoric ascent on Broadway that began with Ziegfeld's 1910 Follies, Lillian Lorraine went on to become one of the most famous entertainers in America.

Her passionately lived life made her a prime target for the tabloid gossip doyens of the day.

This biography recounts the early West Coast life of this superstar as well as her coronation on Broadway, her work in silent film, and her sexual liaisons that helped her gain her notoriety.

It also covers her eventual disappearance from public life, her alcoholism and her death, which went largely unnoticed.

She was buried in 1955 in a pauper's grave. The book includes first-hand personal anecdotes and observations from recently discovered tapes, which were recorded by a confidante of Lorraine's.
