   schema:reviewBody ""Joan Collins is the last of the great glamourpuss stars of Hollywood, a gorgeous woman whose beauty, wit, allure and lively naughtiness have enchanted men all over the world and whose independence, strength of character and indomitable optimism have won the admiration of millions of women. Although she is still best known for her part in Dynasty, she has appeared in more than seventy films, several TV series, numerous TV and stage plays, and has written thirteen books." "Many film and television stars are better actresses than Joan and some are just as good looking, but none has survived in the showbiz jungle for more than fifty years, as she has. In 2007, at the age of seventy-four, she was still onstage every night on a gruelling eight-month tour of the United States and writing another book." "Her love life has been awesome. She admitted that when she first went to Hollywood in the 1950s she had 'zillions and zillions' of boyfriends - so many that they nicknamed her The British Open, a term she mocked in later life. But Joan always had an uncanny knack for choosing the wrong men, and four of her five marriages were disastrous. Her fifth, she says, is the best, maybe because her husband is thirty-three years younger." "In this intimate, revealing and affectionate biography Graham Lord describes each affair and marriage in detail as well as Joan's films, TV appearances, books and travels. He examines her difficult relationships with her father, husbands, lovers, children and bestselling novelist sister Jackie, investigates how she amassed her fortune, and tells dozens of funny, moving and sometimes outrageous stories."--BOOK JACKET." ;
