<b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> bestselling author and daughter of Judy Garland tells the story of <i>A Star Is Born</i> -- at once the crowning achievement and greatest disappointment in her mother's legendary career. This is a vivid account of a film classic's production, loss, and reclamation.</b><br /><i>A Star Is Born -</i>- the classic Hollywood tale about a young talent rising to superstardom, and the downfall of her mentor/lover along the way -- has never gone out of style. It has seen five film adaptations, but none compares to the 1954 version starring Judy Garland in her greatest role. But while it was the crowning performance of the legendary entertainer's career, the production turned into one of the most talked about in movie history.<br />The story, which depicts the dark side of fame, addiction, loss, and suicide, paralleled Garland's own tumultuous life in many ways. While hitting alarmingly close to home for the fragile star, it ultimately led to a superlative performance -- one that was nominated for an Academy Award, but lost in one of the biggest upsets in Oscar history. Running far too long for the studio's tastes, Warner Bros. notoriously slashed extensive amounts of footage from the finished print, leaving <i>A Star is Born </i>in tatters and breaking the heart of both the film's star and director George Cukor.<br />Today, with a director's cut reconstructed from previously lost scenes and audio, the 1954 <i>A Star is Born </i>has taken its deserved place among the most critically acclaimed movies of all time, and continues to inspire each new generation that discovers it. Now, Lorna Luft, daughter of Judy Garland and the film's producer, Sid Luft, tells the story of the production, and of her mother's fight to save her career, as only she could. Teaming with film historian Jeffrey Vance, <i>A Star Is Born</i> is a vivid and refreshingly candid account of the crafting, loss, and restoration of a movie classic, complemented by a trove of images from the family collection taken both on and off the set. The book also includes essays on the other screen adaptations of <i>A Star Is Born</i>, to round out a complete history of a story that has remained a Hollywood favorite for close to a century.

<DIV><B>“A well-researched, intimate portrait of burlesque and the women who teased and seduced their ways into the hearts of the American public” (<B>Nancy Powell).</B></B><BR />  <BR /> Burlesque was one of America’s most popular forms of live entertainment in the first half of the twentieth century. Gaudy, bawdy, and spectacular, the shows entertained thousands of paying customers every night of the week. And yet the legacy of burlesque is often vilified, misunderstood, and left out of the history books.<BR />  <BR /><I>Behind the Burly Q</I> is a painstakingly researched love letter to the women and men who once made up the community of burlesque. Its dish on backstage rivalries and treasure trove of vintage photographs is enough to make historians and fans of classic erotica swoon. The personal and surprising stories of the women and men who lived it—through their own salty reminiscences—reveal the true story of the golden age of burlesque, even as it experiences a new renaissance.<BR />  <BR /> “This rich history, rife with vibrant quotes and first-hand insights from burlesque’s biggest dancers, is indispensable for fans of the ribald pastime.” —<I>Publishers Weekly</I><BR />  <BR /> “An affectionate and historically valuable document of an intriguing, little-served corner of American entertainment.” —<I>Kirkus Reviews</I><BR />  <BR /> “Utterly entertaining . . . Insightful, fascinating.” —Ernest Hardy<B>, </B><I>The Village Voice</I><BR />  <BR /> “Charming . . . The present-day interviews with these women are a delight and also poignant, partly because of the contrast between their older and younger selves, though mostly because of the lives they lived.” —Manohla Dargis, <I>The New York Times</I></DIV>
