Miss Bacall made a rare personal appearance in Glasgow, Scotland to promote this, her updated biography. She received a rapturous welcome on to the stage at the packed Royal Concert Hall; a thunderous ovation that came in wave after wave, the applause endless. She had to appeal to us to stop, genuinely touched by our fervent adulation. We knew we were in the presence of one of the last living Hollywood legends. Her appeal, like her career, spanned generations; from New York model to stock actress to film noir ingenue, to leading lady & award-winning Broadway stardom. All of which is superbly told in this volume, her infamous broken glass voice resonating through each page. I was lucky enough to have my copy signed in person; Miss Bacall was still breathtakingly beautiful, and, as I stammered out a few nervous words, she gave me "The Look", which remains as a precious, treasured memory to this day. Yours might not be signed, but you will treasure it, I promise you.
