The first book on the career of actress Ann Blyth. Multi-talented and remarkably versatile, Blyth began on radio as a child, appeared on Broadway at the age of 12 in Lillian Hellman’s WATCH ON THE RHINE, and enjoyed a long and diverse career in films, theatre, television, and concerts.
A sensitive dramatic actress, the youngest at the time to be nominated for her role in MILDRED PIERCE (1945), she also displayed a gift for comedy, and was especially endeared to fans for her expressive and exquisite lyric soprano, which was showcased in many film and stage musicals.
Still a popular guest at film festivals, lovely Ms. Blyth remains a treasure of the Hollywood’s golden age. This exploration of her career covers in detail her films, television, theatre, and radio performances from a wealth of sources and is illustrated with 275 photographs, some rarely or never before seen.
