Description by OLDIES.com:
Lynn Bari was Hollywood's consummate contract player during the golden age of movies. Beautiful, immensely talented and popular with moviegoers and co-workers alike, she had seemed destined to become a major star - but her ascent was sabotaged by unresolved problems with her domineering, alcoholic mother and three exploitative marriages. Foxy Lady is based on author Jeff Gordon's extensive conversations with Bari, a warm and highly intelligent woman with a delicious sense of humor and the gift of total recall. Gordon's research also involved interviews with dozens of Lynn's friends, family members and professional associates, including Anthony Quinn, Alice Faye, Claire Trevor, Roddy McDowall and George Montgomery. Jeff Gordon is a noted film historian whose work has appeared in Classic Images, Films of the Golden Age, Focus on Film, and numerous other entertainment-oriented publications. In 1984 he formed Jagarts, a retail business and rental archive dealing with the history of American movies through graphic art, photography and publicity. Gordon had been at the helm of a cinema society in New York City for seven years. Since 2004 he has been running a film group in Knoxville, Tennessee, where he currently resides.
