There's a new Alice Faye biography by Jane Lenz Elder published by The University Press of Missisippi (that's what I like about the South). It's been reviewed in the LA Times at http://www.calendarlive.com/books/cl-et-books16oct16,0,397540.story?coll=cl%2Dbooks
An excerpt from the review:
"When Faye married the brash bandleader-comedian Phil Harris, Hollywood said it wouldn't last, but the couple, who had two daughters, had been happily married 54 years when he died in 1995 at age 90. They were a handsome pair who aged gracefully and left their friends and fans with fond memories."
It sounds like a rarity these days, a movie star biography that isn't sordid and ugly.
