THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE WONDERFUL BOOK!!!  I absolutely adore it.  I cried when my mom gave it to me! I’ve already started reading the book and can’t keep my eyes off of it!  It truly is the best gift I have ever received!

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.

"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."
