Few Hollywood careers have been more fabulous, more scandalous, more dizzyingly rags-to-riches than that of Joan Crawford, born Lucille Fay LeSueur.

Joan Crawford didn't become a star. She became the Ultimate Star. She was tough, ambitious, gutsy and fiercely competitive. Her energy was inexhaustible; her temper legendary; her four marriages stormy and violent; her love affairs hotly publicized in countless gossip columns. She set out to be the perfect mother and turned her adopted children's lives into a nightmare. Seldom has a life been lived more in the limelight of publicity.

Here, at last, is the real story, the full, extraordinary account of Joan Crawford's life, her films, her marriages, her secrets and her loves in an intimate, unforgettable biography by a famed Hollywood writer.
