Amazon Gift Card as a Birthday Present–You Know What That Means!!!

Here are the new additions to my collection, soon to arrive:

John Fricke’s latest book! I met John Fricke last year at the Judy Garland Festival in Minneapolis, and this book was on the horizon but still kind of an enigma. Glad to see it materialized! And I can’t wait to read it! John Fricke’s books are always incredible, and I think his work is the cream of the crop in terms of accuracy and volume of information. Everyone go read “World’s Greatest Entertainer.”

Bette Davis’ autobiography, which includes an open letter to B.D. Hyman, her horrendous daughter. I can’t wait.

A fantastic movie, which includes this brilliance:

I came within 15 feet of the cash register at Border’s with this book last month, and was perfectly willing to shell out $35 for this gem of a book, but then my friend Sarah talked me out of it saying I could get it for half that price on Amazon. And she was exactly right. Except I got it for 1/3 of that price. Thank you, Sarah.

I’ve been wanting to read this book forever. I really love Hugo Vickers’ book on Vivien, and being at the Vivien Leigh/Laurence Olivier weekend in London this past May made me think that I’m a freak for not having read it. So here is my chance.

Oh, and I also got this:

So excited for these things to arrive!!
