I was never aware of the closeness of Hitch and Harrison as is evidenced by the photo of them dining aboard ship.
This is a very interesting book spoilt only by the authors desire to bring in feminine issues when discussing Harrison's films.
There are a couple of errors.George in shown driving in RKOs trade gate and not Paramount's Marathon Street gate in Nocturne.Secondly I am certain that Hotchs AFI tribute was shown on the BBC

Fascinating Hollywood HistoryReviewed in the United States on 8 September 2020
Author, Dr. Christina Lane, has written an engaging,and wonderfully readable account of the life and talents of a woman that shaped her own destiny, and paved roads for many to come after her. The intricate research that shines through in details and stories from old Hollywood give the reader more than just a passing glimpse into Joan Harrison's life and work. Woven through the antidotes of her professional path, and her personal life, one gets a true sense of this woman and the challenges she faced, and the recognitions that she earned along the way. A great read for film fans, Hitchcock historians, and readers looking for a bio of a strong woman leading the life she carved out during a time that was often not supportive of a female in a position of power. I highly recommend !

What a terrific book!Reviewed in the United States on 14 July 2020
What a terrific book! Definitely one of the best reads I have had for a long time. Besides following the life story of a talented Hollywood female producer Joan Harrison (who has not previously been given the attention she deserves), the vivid descriptions of people, events and places take the reader straight into the 20th century Hollywood and allow us to be part of it. Looking forward to reading more books from the author - Dr. Christina Lane!

Excellent biographyReviewed in the United States on 1 October 2021
This well researched biography cast light on a previously overlooked subject, producer Joan Harrison. The book is well researched and the author conveys a great appreciation for Harrison’s life and work. A must read for anyone interested in classic cinema and the early days of television.
