Overview

She was acknowledged as the most beautiful woman in the world but she wanted more than accolades from artists and photographers. She soon became the mistress of Edward Albert, prince of Wales and future king of England, then turned her talents to acting, her ultimate triumph. At first people came to see her out of curiosity, but she quickly won them over with her beauty, charm and personality if not her acting talent. During her more than 30 years of performing in the United States, Lillie Langtry came into contact with numerous men and women who are now legends. Author Donna Lee Harper scribes Lillie's meetings with these fascinating people in a most unique way in one of the year's most entertaining books.

Who says there aren't strong roles for women? In my forty years of making films with some of the greatest stars in the business I have never come across such an abundance of outstanding stories about women., "The Diary of Lillie Langtry" is great reading and will make an even greater series of films or television episodes.-William Frye, Motion Picture & Television Producer
