Publisher's Summary

Tallulah Bankhead was known just as much for her off-stage presence as she was for her on-stage performances. Fearless from birth, Tallulah charted her own course in life. She trudged off to New York to make it big in theater when she was still a teen. She then saw opportunity calling on the other side of the Atlantic and didn’t hesitate to hop on a steamship and head to England, chasing her dreams until they became a certain reality.

You will listen about:

  • Early Life and Discovery
  • The Road to England
  • The Suicide Attempt
  • Tallulah’s Return to America
  • Hollywood Success
  • Late Life and Death
  • And much more!

Tallulah Bankhead was a legendary stage performer, a strong voice in both radio and television, and an occasional blockbuster at the movie house. But more than any accolades from theater or film critics, Tallulah is celebrated for her personality and no-holds-barred approach to life. She was someone who refused to conform to anyone’s standards, determined to live life to its fullest, and on her own terms. The life and legacy of Tallulah Bankhead is an impressive one by anyone’s standards.

What a sad life!

Money and drugs obviously can't buy you love without which the others just hide the pain.

"Dramatic Actress", INDEED

I am now 73; when I first saw Tallulah on TV, she was past her prime. I want to see her before that.

Tallulah

Very well performed. However I wish the book would have included one of her greatest roles in Sunset Boulevard. She certainly was a rebel for her time..
