KAY FRANCIS: I CAN'T WAIT TO BE FORGOTTEN - HER LIFE ON FILM AND STAGE by Scott O'Brien

American stage and film actress Kay Francis moved quickly from a brief run on Broadway during the late 1920s to her film debut in Gentlemen of the Press (1929) and the Marx Brothers film, The Cocoanuts (1929).

Kay starred in nearly two dozen important films between 1929 and 1931, yet today she is largely forgotten, yet when author Scott O’Brien gained access to Kay’s personal diaries, he discovered the woman behind the mask: Kay's compassionate nature, her concern for others, her great contributions on behalf of those serving in the armed forces during World War II, and the financial legacy she contributed to The Seeing Eye, an organization that trains dogs for the blind.

Discover her godson’s portrait of a woman who lived in the moment and generated a great deal of loving warmth, amplified by many rare unpublished photos, interviews from co-workers, friends, and family. The face behind the fame finally emerges in a complete the picture of one of Hollywood's most glamorous and intriguing stars.
