Jezebel (1938), Now, Voyager (1942) and All About Eve (1950) were selected by the Library of Congress for ‘cultural significance.’ She smoked 100 cigarettes a day, married four times, and is famous for the adage, “Old age is no place for sissies.” Meet this icon in Leslie Goddard’s historical interpretation.
