"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."
