Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

New York Daily News
“She was once considered the most beautiful woman in the world, and there’s plenty of evidence to support that in this illustrated filmography that spans a 70-year career.”

Praise for Cindy De La Hoz's books:

Lana. "One of the best books I've ever read about a star." — Leonard Maltin

Lucy at the Movies. "Lucy at the Movies is comprehensive and enlightening....The book is worth the price just for the biography, but the photos make it even more special. ...A must-have for any Ball fan." — The Advocate, December 16, 2007

Marilyn Monroe: Platinum Fox. "...this lavish, luxurious coffee-table volume chronicles Monroe's Hollywood career with hundreds of photos, including candid, never-published-before on-the-set snapshots, and insights into the dramatic skills that were usually overshadowed by a hyper-glamorized sexpot façade." — American Profile

"Platinum Fox' is a slickly packaged scrapbook served up like a luscious dessert." — Asbury Park Press, December 23, 2007

    Roleplayed since I got my nook for christmas of 2012. I've become an expert over two years. I've become a good semi-advanced rper and I'm Catholic, so you don't have to worry about that se.x cra<_>p. I'm only applying because I'm interested in the time travel part. I'm a fan of Doctor Who, you see. <p> I also figured out that Nook simple touch reviews use HTML code. I've been roing for a long time. I even know what BBCode is .
