Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Pitch perfect From Funny Girl to A Star Is Born, the meteoric rise of Barbra Streisand In 1970 Barbra Streisand published a story in Life magazine titled "Who Am I Anyway?" It was the very question two leading photojournalists of the day-Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller-were also asking as they photographed her during her first five years in Hollywood, working to get beneath the veneer and capture "the real Barbra." Brimming with photographs, stories, and behind-the-scenes shots from Schapiro and Schiller, and previously available only as a limited edition, this is a must-have collection for any Streisand fan. All the best movies of Streisand's first Hollywood decade are here: Funny Girl, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Way We Were, The Owl and the Pussycat, Up the Sandbox, Funny Lady, and A Star Is Born. So too are her loves, directors, confidants, and costars: Elliott Gould, William Wyler, Sydney Pollack, Vincente Minnelli, Cis Corman, Omar Sharif, Kris Kristofferson, and, of course, Robert Redford. Through it all a picture emerges not of a singer who could act, but of an actress who could sing, write, direct, dance, and do just about anything she put her mind to.

Pitch perfect: From Funny Girl to A Star Is Born, the meteoric rise of Barbra StreisandIn 1970 Barbra Streisand published a story in Life magazine titled "Who Am I Anyway?"

Audrey Hepburn

Author: Bob Willoughby
Publisher: Taschen America Llc
ISBN: 3836527375
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Performing Arts

In his distinguished career as a Hollywood photographer, Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Kathleen Ruston, later Edda van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston, best known as Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. It was a humdrum commission for the portraitist often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still, but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. "She took my hand like...well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men's hearts," he recalled.

Alle Frauen sind Huren

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

In Marokko ist Loubna Abidar zum Symbol des Widerstandes geworden. Der internationale Erfolg des Films Much Loved 2015, in dem sie die Rolle einer Prostituierten spielt, brachte ihr eine Nominierung für den Cesar Award als beste Schauspielerin. Sie ist dafür aber auch als "Hure" bezeichnet und im eigenen Land mit dem Tode bedroht worden. Ihre Schuld? Abidar hat es gewagt, mit den größten Tabus in der arabischen Welt zu brechen: Nacktheit, Prostitution und die Stellung der Frau in einer Macho-Gesellschaft. In diesem ergreifenden und erschütternden Buch erzählt Loubna Abidar von ihrem Leben und ihren Kämpfen: Ihrer Kindheit in Armut, der sexuellen Gewalt, die sie durch ihren eigenen Vater erlebt hat, der Verlogenheit der Männer und von den Traditionen der islamisch-arabischen Welt, an denen die Frauen zu ersticken drohen. Aber sie berichtet auch, wie die Schauspielerei sie gerettet hat. Wie sie ihr die Kraft gegeben hat, gegen all die Unterdrückung und Verachtung anzukämpfen. Von den Straßen von Marrakesch zu den Stufen des Filmfestivals von Cannes ist es ein langer Weg. Abidar ist ihn mutig und stark gegangen. Ihre Biografie ist ein Aufruf an alle Frauen, sich gegen die Benachteiligungen, die im Namen veralteter Traditionen oder eines falsch verstandenen Islams erfolgt, zur Wehr zu setzen und mehr Freiheiten einzufordern.
