No one who has seen Teresa Wright's performance as the daughter in The Little Foxes could ever forget it. She was rewarded for her gift at a young age when she won an Academy Award in her twenties.
Wright was a born actress and showed her talent at school. She had to overcome a dreadful childhood to get anywhere at all, apparently. Her mother was a prostitute and deserted her when she was very little. Her father was largely absent but he sent her to a good school. This trial made Teresa Wright tough which helped her in her career. Surprisingly, it didn't make her bitter and she was a lovely person and extremely kind and mentoring.
This book is an interesting analysis of Wright's career and her personal life. It is recommended for anyone interested in old Hollywood.
I received this book free fromNet Galley in exchange for an honest review.
