Sorel's written portrait of Mary Astor is as delightful as his illustrations. Astor's career in silent films began as a teenager, leading eventually to her best known role in The Maltese Falcon, with her fair share of affairs and marriages in between. This isn't just a tale of the famous sex scandal, it's the story of a woman during Hollywood's Golden Age who persevered in a business dominated by men. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
