Eleanor Robson Belmont: A Theatrical Life (Paperback)
by Kevin Lane Dearinger

When Mrs. August Belmont died in 1979, just before her 100th birthday, she was remembered as a philanthropist and advocate for the arts, especially the Metropolitan Opera. But before her triumphs as Mrs. Belmont, she had dignified the American stage for 13 glorious years as Eleanor Robson, actress. Her splendid voice, understated style, and always-evident intelligence thrilled legions of theatregoers and enthralled the best playwrights of her time, including Israel Zangwill, Clyde Fitch, and George Bernard Shaw.

Despite the brevity of her career, Eleanor Robson stands as a prototype for many who followed her – women who sought to control their own careers and demanded artistic respect and freedom. This is the first book-length biography focusing especially on her theatrical career.
