Dave Wood's Book Report, March 12, 2008
Here we are in the shadow of the Oscars and here I am with two books about the movie industry that you may want to peruse.
First is "Not the Girl Next Door," by Charlotte Chandler (Simon & Schuster, $26). This one's about actress Joan Crawford.
No, no! It's not another "Mommie Dearest," the book about Crawford written by her ungrateful daughter. This one is written by Charlotte Chandler, Crawford's grateful biographer.
