Praise for Hollywood: Her Story


It is a great honor to be included in Hollywood: Her Story, alongside so many extraordinary women who have inspired me throughout my life and career.

The women who make Hollywood tick! They have always existed behind the scenes and their accomplishments have never found the pedestal they deserve. Jill and Barbara re-introduce us to these women by adding them back into the historical narratives where they always belonged. Reading their achievements we realize that Hollywood was built on their backs! Bravo.

This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in learning the many contributions of women behind and in front of the camera. As a filmmaker and a father of two dynamic girls, it’s great to see all the women who contributed to cinema’s past—and hopefully more so to its future!

What an eye-opening thrill! This vibrant visual collection strikes a blow to the forces seeking to exclude and erase us from the story of cinema.
