Janet Leigh; a biography.


Janet Leigh; a biography.

Capua, Michelangelo.

McFarland & Co.


250 pages



Capua, author of many Hollywood film star biographies and correspondent for an Italian film magazine, provides a biography of American film legend Janet Leigh. The author follows the then Jeanette Helen Morrison from childhood to her entry into Hollywood film, and on to her marriage to film star Tony Curtis, and on through the remaining trajectory of her life. He also documents her consistently good-natured and honest attitude, her talent, and the lack of critical acclaim that hampered her career.
