Women Who Charmed the West


Legendary actresses of the past are brought front and center in this lively, entertaining book by Ann Seagraves. From the Victorian era of the 1800s through the turn-of-the-century, famous stars like Lillian Russell, Sarah Bernhardt, Maude Adams, and Lillie Langtry, provided the real glitz and glitter of yesterday's stage. In the East, ladies of the stage were considered, by many women, to be immoral or "sinful, " while in the frontier towns of the West, they were received with friendliness and respect. While playing the West, actresses not only entertained their audiences - they charmed them! This well written book is illustrated throughout with elegant B&W historic photographs. Paperbound: 176 pages: 6 x 9"
