Diana McLellan reveals the complex and intimate connections that roiled behind the public personae of Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Tallulah Bankhead, and the women who loved them. Private correspondence, long-secret FBI files, and troves of unpublished documents reveal a chain of lesbian affairs that moved from the theater world of New York, through the heights of chic society, to embed itself in the power structure of the movie business. TheGirls serves up a rich stew of film, politics, sexuality, psychology, and stardom.111 Louise recalled an afternoon: Louise Brooks toKevin Brownlow, Barry Paris, Garbo, pp. 26566. 111 a€œa ... 115 a€œMercedesa€”Leadmea€: inscribedon aphotograph Mercedes used in Here Lies the Heart, June 28, 1926. 116 a€œLesbian loveanbsp;...
