The Revealing Autobiography of Hollywood's First African-American Sex Symbol and Screen Legend
Dorothy Dandridge's life story is the stuff of Hollywood dreams - and nightmares. Completed shortly before her tragic death in 1965, 'Everything And Nothing' recounts her rags-to-riches-to-rags story from her personal point of view.
Dandridge recalls her humble beginnings in Depression-era Cleveland, Ohio, her rise to fame and success as the first African-American to receive a Best Actress Oscar Nomination (for her role in 'Carmen Jones'), the disappointments and pain of her childhood and family life, and her downward spiral into alcoholism and financial troubles.
Filled with laughter and tears, this is a mesmerising and harrowing journey through the life and times of one of Hollywood's most unforgettable stars.
