Among the great actresses and comediennes from the golden age of stage and screen,some stand out as legends of their time.In this hugely entertaining book the author draws upon interviews and conversations he had with a number of these grande dames of British theatre,some born during Queen Victoria's reign,many Dames of the British Empire. From Dame Peggy Ashcroft to Estelle Winwood,these Leading Ladies conquered both stage and screen,and their unique portrayals endure to this day both in memory and rerun after rerun of their classic films.Some were beloved comediennes,some created immortal screen characterizations,others lived their lives and legends mostly on stage. Whatever their particular gift,these riveting profiles reveal their warmth, wit and candour,and prompted by the author's searching - and often daring - questions we come to know them as never before. Boze Hadleigh,an Anglophile now living in Beverly Hills and a true devotee of these 'golden girls',sought out these personal interviews: in some cases it took years,but in all cases the result is exciting,nostalgic, intimate and surprising.His observations about each actress's career are interspersed with her own self-evaluation and comments about her professional and private life.The woman behind the leading lady emerges in each vivid,charming encounter.In all,they reveal not only the powerful and often eccentric personalities of these fine actresses,but also the magic and colour of a remarkable era. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
