Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye: The Barbara Payton Story is the heartbreaking saga of the wild and free-spirited actress who hit Hollywood in the late 1940s, equipped with little more than a suitcase full of dreams, a ravenous hunger for fame and a devastating beauty---only to see each one of her dreams destroyed by a disastrous private life that led her straight through the gates of Hell.

Gutsy, vulnerable--and doomed--Barbara Payton blazed across the motion picture stratosphere in record-time, only to collapse in a catastrophic free-fall from which she would never recover.

A second volume on Barbara's life and career, titled "Barbara Payton: A Life in Pictures" is now in progress. It will contain over 250 rare and previously unpublished photos of Barbara, along with commentary by John O'Dowd, Barbara's son, John Lee Payton, and family member Jan Redfield.
A film project based on the BearManor Media book, "KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE: THE BARBARA PAYTON STORY", is currently underway in Los Angeles!!

Editorial Reviews

Classic Images - Laura Wagner
A big, big plus is the collection of interviews the author conducted in the nearly ten years he researched this book. He interviewed family members, co-workers, and acquaintances, resulting in an almost astonishing day-by-day record of what Payton was doing. I know from experience that people close to controversial subjects tend to clam up.
Journal - Van Helsing's
Undertaken with the complete cooperation of Payton's estate and featuring a foreword penned by her son, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye neither sensationalizes nor trivializes the life of this tormented and irrevocably damaged soul. Despite an obvious empathy for his subject O'Dowd manages to tread a fine line between partisan and impartial, and makes no effect either to moralize or sugarcoat the degradation of Payton's final years.
