Publisher's Summary

The fascinating lives of celebrated Broadway producer Irene Mayer Selznick (A Streetcar Named Desire; The Chalk Garden) and leading socialite Edith Mayer Goetz are explored in this revealing double bio. 

As the daughters of iconic MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer, they were Hollywood royalty. Through their marriages to high-profile film producers - Irene to David O. Selznick (Gone with the Wind) and Edith to future Universal mogul William Goetz - the sisters each carved out her own distinctive niche in Hollywood while supporting and influencing their husbands’ work. 

Edie rose to prominence as queen bee of movie-industry society. Irene left her husband and started a new life in New York, where she embarked on an ambitious career as a theatrical producer, not only succeeding with major hit plays, but blazing a trail for women in the theater. 

Set against the glamorous backdrop of Hollywood’s Golden Age and postwar Broadway, Movie Dynasty Princesses chronicles the exciting, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking journeys of these rivalrous sisters who strove to make their dreams come true.

Gossip about the rich

It would help if the narrator knew how to pronounce the names of secondary characters well known to the theatrical world! For starts Bill Fitelson pronounced like he was a gym rat. And Joe Mielziner pronounced MEAlZEYENER. Really? The narrator has no clue. Stupid.
