It remains a mystery why she didn't get the acknowledgment and celebrity she deserved. The book details the odd story of Carolyn's life including her 4 marriages. The author meticulously interviews all who knew her in film and TV as well as in her personal life. The story is fascinating, as is Carolyn's personality. Her many films clearly document her considerable talent, but something about this story doesn't make sense, even though It is obviously told honestly and accurately. Why isn't Carolyn remembered as a movie star?
The reader is invited to come up with a theory based on what James Pylant revelas about the life of this great icon. Hilarious Hollywood stories abound in this book, so that anyone who loves to know about important people in cinema will enjoy reading In Morticia's Shadow. I love Carolyn, really enjoyed reading about her life. Shocks me to think she stopped getting good roles because she was in her mid thirties! Madness how that was considered old. I would not recommend buying this book on Kindle as the images do not appear. They cut off and at times cut into the words.
I was very frustrated at this by the end of the book.
