Now available in a revised version that contains changes made for the London revival, this saga of the silent film era is the story of legendary director Mack Sennett and his greatest star, Mabel Normand. It is told in flashback by Mack Sennett himself as the protagonist narrator and he opens a broken man, made obsolete by talkies, having to sell his studio, and reminiscing about the past. He recalls his triumphs and his turbulent love affair with Mabel. He loves her, but never tells her. She leaves him for a drug pushing director; and, engulfed by cocaine, she dies an early, tragic death.--From publisher's description

Caesar and Cleopatra : a history by Bernard Shaw( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Caesar and Cleopatra, George Bernard Shaw uses his legendary wit to turn ancient history on its head - and to challenge Shakespeare's view of his two famous protagonists. Political drama meets sparkling comedy as veteran strategist Julius Caesar becomes mentor to the enchanting teenage queen of Roman-occupied Egypt. From her first timid encounter with Caesar under a desert moon, Cleopatra grows in strength to become a determined player in the game of power politics - but has she really learned what Caesar wanted to teach her? In his inimitable style, Shaw turns this centuries-old story into a hilarious yet affecting critique of human nature that remains as pertinent today as when he wrote it - reminding readers once again why he is regarded as one of the English language's greatest playwrights
