Mary Astor's purple diary

by Edward Sorel | 04 October 2016
Category: Films Cinema & DVD
Synopsis
In 1965, the young illustrator Edward Sorel discovered a treasure in his railroad flat on Manhattan's Upper East Side: issues of the 'New York Daiy News' and 'Daily Mirror' from 1936 ablaze with a trial taking place in Hollywood. Mary Astor was enough of a star to make headlines when it came out that George S. Kaufman, then the most successful playwright on Broadway and a married man, had been her lover. The scandal revolved around Mary's diary which her ex-husband had found. Its contents forced her to give up custody of their daughter in order to obtain a divorce. Mary, he claimed, had not only kept a tally of all her extramarital affairs but graded them - and he had alerted the press. 'Mary Astor's Purple Diary' narrates and illustrated the travails of the Oscar-winning actress alongside Sorel's own story of discovering an unlikely muse.
