In Starring Joan Crawford: The Films, the Fantasy, and the Modern Relevance of a Silver Screen Icon, author and screenwriter Samuel Garza Bernstein examines what made the star from Hollywood’s Golden Age a force of feminist self-determination for women today.

Covering her five-decade career, Garza Bernstein reveals how Crawford molded and remolded her image while staying true to herself.

Embracing her conflicts and contradictions, he describes Joan Crawford as “an essential American archetype.” Starring Joan Crawford will drop during Pride Month on June 4 from Globe Pequot/Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc. $45.00 hardcover.

Drawing on reams of press coverage with never-before-seen restored images, Starring Joan Crawford is a celebration of its subject and exploration of how she informed ideas about wealth and class, femininity and gender roles, identity and fulfillment.
