The Life and Times of Nargis
The Life and Times of Nargis
Description
Back of the Book

The life and times of Nargis is a complete study of one of the most beautiful and talented stars of the golden Era of the 1950s. She was considered the icon of that period as Devika Rani was of the earlier golden Era the 1930s.

The anecdotes and minutiae the author has assembled with unsparing research make of a book that is extraordinary informative as well as elegantly readable. The value of this study is vastly enhanced by a portfolio of photographs and the fullest filmography to dare of Nargis.
