From the author of Auntie Mame: the bawdy, bestselling, bountifully illustrated autobiography of an imaginary diva whose life is one hilarious mishap after another.For Belle Poitrine, nee Mayble Schlumpfert, all the worlds a stage and shes the most important player on it. At once coy and coercive, with a name that means beautiful bosom in French, she claws her way from Strivers Row to the silver screen. Recalling Belles career, which ranged from portraying Anne Boleyn in Oh, Henry to roles in both Sodom and its sequel Gomorrah (not to mention the classic Papaya Paradise), Little Me serves up copious quanitites of husbands, couture, and Pink Lady cocktails, with international adventures and a murder trial to boot.A runaway bestseller that made its way to Broadway, starring Sid Caesar in 1962 and Martin Short in 1998, Little Me is now reprinted--with all of the 150 historic, hysterical photographs depicting the funniest scenes from Belles sordid life, including cameo appearances by the author and Rosalind Russell. Considered a collectors item, the first edition of Little Me was like a performance in book form. Now this glittering spoof of celebrity is gloriously reincarnated for connoisseurs of all things chick and cheeky. From the Trade Paperback edition.
