The Golden Girls of MGM: Glamour and Grief (Paperback)

by Jane Ellen Wayne

Format: Paperback 416 pages

Not available on

This is the fascinating inside story of MGM's silver-screen debutantes - exquisite properties of the most prestigious movie studio in the world - as they struggled to reconcile the demands of the studio and the intrusive control of its boss Louis B. Mayer with the luxury and glamour afforded by their Hollywood careers. The MGM girls seemed to be an untouchable breed of womanhood and, to ensure that their public image remained untarnished, somebody was hired specially to shield the truth from the press. The truth now emerges, with numerous tales of secret affairs, abortions and love children concerning such big names as Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly, Liz Taylor and Lana Turner.
