Few performers have enjoyed so much popular and critical acclaim. Together they enjoyed phenomenal success in vaudeville, radio, television, and film. Although they were celebrities, the two performers enjoyed a life remarkably free of scandal. After the death of Allen in 1964, Burns made commercials, a music video, and an exercise

He was also the subject of scandal, having been accused of rape and murder in 1921. Though he was never indicted on these charges and was acquitted of manslaughter, his reputation was tarnished and the incident is alluded to even today. This book draws upon extensive research to provide an objective record of his life and work.The

Our Lady of the Snows documents Sarah Bernhardt's visits to Canada between 1880 and 1918, particularly her conflicts with the Archbishops of Montreal and Quebec City. It also examines the response of anglophone and francophone critics to her repertory and her presence in recent Canadian plays, particularly John Murrell's Memoir. It argues that Bernhardt, whose fame and notoriety provoked Quebec's patriarchal clerical establishment, was unwittingly a catalyst stimulating public debate between

This provocative work analyzes Mae West's long life and productive career in three major phases: the early theater years, her meteoric film career in the thirties, and her subsequent life as a popular culture legend. It examines her theatrical approach to life and her unique talent for translating a low comic variety style into a subtle satire of melodramatic conventions. West's attempts to control her comic creation led her into many public battles over her claims to authorship of her plays
