9781593931063: Kay Francis: I Can't Wait to be Forgotten: Her Life on Film and Stage

Aside from referencing over 130 entries from Kay Francis' personal diaries, I Can't Wait To Be Forgotten pays tribute to Kay's compassionate nature, her concern for others, her great contributions on behalf of those serving in the armed forces during World War II, and the financial legacy she contributed to The Seeing Eye. Kay felt that being of some service to others was far more important than focusing totally on promoting herself and a film career. Readers will be surprised to learn about the "real" Kay Francis in retirement. Her godsons paint a portrait of a woman who lived in the moment, and generated a great deal of loving warmth. Many rare, unpublished photos from Kay's youth and retirement years are featured in her biography. Interviews from co-workers, friends and children of her "ex's" complete the picture of one of Hollywood's most glamorous and intriguing stars.

From the Author:

This second edition offers additional material on both Kay's personal and professional life. Kay's co-star, Sybil Jason, provides new commentary (and a wonderful photo) in the book's introductory pages. The grandchildren of Kay's second husband, William Gaston, provide insight into the 'scandalous' marriage of Kay and 'Big Bill.' New documentation from the archives of the Naval Hospital in Corona (California) detail the emotional impact of Kay's work with wounded servicemen during WWII. Her reliable and devoted presence made a difference in their lives, and, in some cases, their deaths. This second edition also features eight new photos, and many other anecdotes to complete the portrait of one of the great film legends - Kay Francis. (Scott O'Brien)
