While the impact that legendary actors and actresses have had on the development of the Hollywood film industry is well known, few have recognised the power of movie fans on shaping the industry. This books redresses that balance, and is the first study of Hollywood's golden era to examine the period from the viewpoint of the fans. Using fan club journals, fan letters, studio production records, and other previously unpublished archival sources, Samantha Barbas reveals how the passion, enthusiasm, and ongoing activism of film fans in Hollywood's golden era transformed early cinema, the modern mass media and American popular culture.

At an exclusive California prep school, four young girls form a bond that will endure over two decades—a bond built on secrets, scandal and murder…a bond about to be broken. Mattie, a federal judge…Breeze, a wealthy entrepreneur…and Jane, the first lady of the United States, have all enjoyed a meteoric rise to success since their days at the Rowe Academy for Girls. But now the truth behind the suicide of their friend Ivy and the murder of their headmistress twenty years ago is no longer safely hidden. The man imprisoned for the murder has been exonerated, and a true crime reporter is relentlessly pursuing a loose thread in the decades-old cover-up, one that threatens to unravel the women's pact of silence. But none of them anticipated the twisted depths of the secrets about to be exposed—or how the truth could shatter all their lives.

The legendary Hollywood star blazes a fiery trail in this enthralling portrait of a brilliant actress and the movies her talent elevated to greatness She was magnificent and exasperating in equal measure. Jack Warner called her "an explosive little broad with a sharp left." Humphrey Bogart once remarked, "Unless you're very big she can knock you down." Bette Davis was a force of nature—an idiosyncratic talent who nevertheless defined the words "movie star" for more than half a century and who created an extraordinary body of work filled with unforgettable performances. In Dark Victory, the noted film critic and biographer Ed Sikov paints the most detailed picture ever delivered of this intelligent, opinionated, and unusual woman who was—in the words of a close friend—"one of the major events of the twentieth century." Drawing on new interviews with friends, directors, and admirers, as well as archival research and a fresh look at the films, this stylish, intimate biography reveals Davis's personal as well as professional life in a way that is both revealing and sympathetic. With his wise and well-informed take on the production and accomplishments of such movie milestones as Jezebel, All About Eve, and Now, Voyager, as well as the turbulent life and complicated personality of the actress who made them, Sikov's Dark Victory brings to life the two-time Academy Award–winning actress's unmistakable screen style, and shows the reader how Davis's art was her own dark victory.

Ο γάµος της Τζόντι και του Τοντ βρίσκεται σε κρίσιµη στιγµή. Πολλά διακυβεύονται, συµπεριλαµβανοµένης της άνετης ζωής τους στο πανέµορφο διαµέρισµα στο Σικάγο δίπλα στο νερό, καθώς εκείνη και εκείνος προχωρούν µε ιλιγγιώδη ταχύτητα προς το κεντρικό γεγονός. Εκείνος ζει διπλή ζωή. Εκείνη ζει και αναπνέει την άρνηση. Εκείνος αποφασίζει να φύγει. Εκείνη δεν έχει τίποτα πια να χάσει.Μέσα από την εναλλαγή των φωνών, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος µιλάει για έναν γάµο που διαλύεται, για ένα ζευγάρι που οδεύει προς την καταστροφή, για παραχωρήσεις που είναι αδύνατον να γίνουν, για υποσχέσεις που δεν πρόκειται να εκπληρωθούν... «Με την κοµψή και επιδέξια πένα της σκιαγραφεί τα αντιµαχόµενα ψυχολογικά πορτρέτα δύο εραστών που µετατρέπονται σε υποτιθέµενο δολοφόνο και άτυχο θύµα, σε µια ιστορία που κανείς δεν πρόκειται να ξεχάσει σύντοµα. Δεν µπορούσα να αφήσω το βιβλίο από τα χέρια µου». Elizabeth George «Το ανατριχιαστικό πορτρέτο µιας σχέσης που πήγε τροµερά λάθος. Μια ιστορία που κόβει την ανάσα και που θα σας κρατήσει πάνω από το βιβλίο µέχρι πολύ αργά τη νύχτα, ξάγρυπνους για πολλή ώρα ακόµα κι όταν φτάσετε στην τελευταία σελίδα». New York Times «Η ανάγνωση της Σιωπηλής συζύγου είναι µια αµαρτωλή απόλαυση!» Kate Atkinson «Σαν µικροσκοπική ρωγµή στο γυαλί του πεπρωµένου, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος εξετάζει την έσχατη συντριβή ενός απολύτως πολιτισµένου γάµου. Έντονη, σαγηνευτική και απολύτως συναρπαστική, η πένα της Harrison προκαλεί τους χαρακτήρες της να ξεπεράσουν τα όριά τους και να βγουν σε έναν κόσµο όπου τα πάντα είναι πιθανά, ακόµη και ο φόνος». Elizabeth Brundage «ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ… Καλύτερο από το Gone Girl της Gillian Flynn». Sophie Hannah

Over eight bloody months in the mid-1970s, a serial rapist and murderer terrorized Columbus, Georgia, killing seven affluent, elderly white women by strangling them in their beds. In 1986, eight years after the last murder, an African American, Carlton Gary, was convicted for these crimes and sentenced to death. Though to this day many in the city doubt his guilt, he remains on death row. Award-winning reporter David Rose has followed this case for a decade, in an investigation that led him to, among other places, The Big Eddy Club—an all-white, private, members-only club in Columbus, frequented by the town’s most prominent judges and lawyers . . . as well as most of the seven murdered women. In this setting, Rose brings to light the city’s bloodstained history of racism, lynching, and unsolved, politically motivated murder. Framed by the tale of two lynchings—one illegally carried out at the start of the last century, and the other carried out with legal due process at the end of it, The Big Eddy Club is a gripping, revealing drama, full of evocatively drawn characters, insidious institutions, and the extraordinary connections that bind past and present. The book is also a compelling, accessible, and timely exploration of race and criminal justice, not only in the context of the South, but in the whole of the United States, as it addresses the widespread corruption of due process as a tool of racial oppression.
