"No other twentieth-century artist in or out of film so captivated the world or spent so much energy trying to hide from it. To bring her out of hiding, Barry Paris draws on a wealth of hitherto unavailable material - ranging from Garbo's drama school notebooks and her unpublished letters to an astonishing set of a hundred taped conversations, recorded during her later years in New York, as well as interviews with her surviving friends and family in Sweden and America." "Paris's biography supplants the legend of Garbo the "enigma" with a revelation of the real woman, whose grip on our imagination remains as powerful today as it was almost seventy years ago when she dazzled the world in Flesh and the Devil."--BOOK JACKET

Stella Adler on Ibsen, Strindberg, and Chekhov by Stella Adler( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 668 libraries worldwide
Stella Adler examines the role of the actor and brings to life the plays from which all modern theater derives: Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, The Master Builder, An Enemy of the People, and A Doll's House; Strindberg's Miss Julie and The Father; Chekhov's The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, The Cherry Orchard, and Three Sisters. Adler discusses the ideas behind these plays and explores the world of the playwrights and the history - both familial and cultural - that informed their work. She illumines not only the dramatic essence of each play but its subtext as well, continually asking questions that deepen one's understanding of the work and of the human spirit
