Barbara

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1941536&cjsku=1941536...
Elle est l'une des artistes les plus marquantes de la chanson, rfrence pour Zazie, Delerm, Carla Bruni, Calogero, Kiberlain et tant d'autres... Qu'avait donc Barbara de si particulier pour continuer de fasciner et d'intriguer autant dix ans aprs sa mort ? On voque sans cesse son "mystre"... Ce livre, fruit de plusieurs annes d'enqute, parvient nous la dvoiler. Pour la premire fois, des proches de Barbara, qui avaient toujours refus de parler, ont accept de la raconter. Depuis la Gorgie, une pianiste se rappelle ses dbuts sur scne, dans la "laiterie" de Bruxelles. Entre deux avions, un homme se remmore ses concerts d'Abidjan, sous l'oeil bienveillant d'un tenancier arm. Dans la discrtion, un vieil ami raconte qu'elle fut un jour prise de panique, en pleine rue, parce qu'elle pensait y avoir vu son Pre. Pour la premire fois aussi, ce livre remet en perspective les crits de Barbara, publis ou non. S'en dgage le portrait vivant et bouleversant d'une trs grande blesse, dont la vie tout entire fut guide par l'obsession de chanter. Et le fameux "mystre" finit par s'estomper.

Barbara Stanwyck

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2269874&cjsku=2269874...
Barbara Stanwyck (1907-1990) rose from the ranks of chorus girl to become one of Hollywood's most talented leading women-and America's highest paid woman in the mid-1940s. Shuttled among foster homes as a child, she took a number of low-wage jobs while she determinedly made the connections that landed her in successful Broadway productions. Stanwyck then acted in a stream of high-quality films from the 1930s through the 1950s. Directors such as Cecil B. DeMille, Fritz Lang, and Frank Capra treasured her particular magic. A four-time Academy Award nominee, winner of three Emmys and a Golden Globe, she was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Academy. Dan Callahan considers both Stanwyck's life and her art, exploring her seminal collaborations with Capra in such great films as Ladies of Leisure , The Miracle Woman , and The Bitter Tea of General Yen ; her Pre-Code movies Night Nurse and Baby Face ; and her classic roles in Stella Dallas , Remember the Night , The Lady Eve , and Double Indemnity . After making more than eighty films in Hollywood, she revived her career by turning to television, where her role in the 1960s series The Big Valley renewed her immense popularity. Callahan examines Stanwyck's career in relation to the directors she worked with and the genres she worked in, leading up to her late-career triumphs in two films directed by Douglas Sirk, All I Desire and There's Always Tomorrow , and two outrageous westerns, The Furies and Forty Guns . The book positions Stanwyck where she belongs-at the very top of her profession-and offers a close, sympathetic reading of her performances in all their range and complexity.
