Reseña del editor:

In 1912, producer Henry Miller became smitten with his young discovery Ruth Chatterton. They teamed on stage in The Rainbow (above) and, for a time, off stage as well. In 1928, Hollywood beckoned. "Talkies" needed "voices" and Chatterton's faultless English was her ticket to film stardom. Nominated for Best Actress in popular tearjerkers like Madame X and Sarah and Son, Chatterton proved equally adept in a feminist turn, Female (above). In 1936, she offered her cinematic piece de resistance as the superficial, selfish wife of Walter Huston (below) in the Academy Award nominated Dodsworth. A friend of Amelia Earhart, Ruth also earmarked her career as an aviator and sponsor of successful air derbies. By 1950, the actress/aviator became recognized as a novelist whose courageous controversial work made The New York Times best-seller list. She tackled Anti-Semitism, McCarthyism, racism, and proved adept in making a positive ripple amid society's prejudices. Ruth Chatterton - Actress, Aviator, Author is a long overdue tribute to a remarkable woman who challenged the world that surrounded her.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
