This is a truly awful book. It skims over Roger's career, criticising most of it & levelelling snide comments about her along the way. Only the Astaire films are mentioned in a favourable light (more one suspects for Astiaire than Rogers) & her solo work is routinely criticised, as is she for just about everything she has ever said or done-even having the audacity to carry on working into her old age (how shocking not to creep into a box & die when she was over 40!) The only good thing about the book are the photos, but apart from that i strongly reccoemend reading anything else about her that actually gives a fair portrait of a very talented & beautiful star.
