Carole Landis: A Tragic Life in Hollywood

Paperback
Before she was a glamorous actress, before she was a war-time pin-up star, even before she was Carole Landis, she was Frances Lillian Ridste, an insecure young girl from Wisconsin. She was strikingly beautiful, talented, and on her way to becoming a movie star, yet she spent her entire life searching for love. This work examines Landis's life and career in Hollywood, focusing on how her movie career affected her short, unhappy life.
