"Without a doubt, Foxy Lady is the best biography I have ever read."

Actress Lynn Bari appeared in more than a hundred 20th Century Fox films from the early 1930s through the 1940s. She appeared prominently in The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1944), China Girl (1942), Hello, Frisco, Hello (1943), and The Spiritualist (1948). In B movies, Lynn was usually cast as a villainess, such as her roles in Shock (1946) and Nocturne (1946).
During WWII, Lynn was the second-most popular pinup girl after Betty Grable.
Lynn’s extensive television work included roles in episodes of The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. (1967), The FBI (1968), Perry Mason (1964-1965), Death Valley Days (1964), Ripcord (1963), and Ben Casey (1961).
Foxy Lady is based on author Jeff Gordon's extensive conversations with Lynn, who he describes as a “warm and highly intelligent woman with a delicious sense of humor and the gift of total recall.” Gordon's research also includes interviews with dozens of Lynn's friends, family members, and professional associates, including Anthony Quinn, Alice Faye, Claire Trevor, Roddy McDowall, and George Montgomery.
About the author: Jeff Gordon is a noted film historian, whose work has appeared in Classic Images, Films of the Golden Age, Focus on Film, and numerous other entertainment-oriented publications. In 1984, he formed Jagarts, a retail business and rental archive dealing with the history of American movies through graphic art, photography, and publicity.
"One of the biographies I have ever read. Gordon extensively interviewed Bari, and her quotes about her career are marvelous."
