Chez Morgan: The Helen Morgan by W. Joseph Matheson
Chronicles Helen Morgan's rise from cabaret signer and chorus girl to 'Queen of the Speakeasies' and start of Brodway's 'Showboat'.
Morgan's life could have been written by a melodramatic Hollywood scriptwriter, complete with love triangles, brushes with the law, a famous rivalry that turned to friendship and a rise from poverty to the heights of popularity.
Referred to as 'The Bird in a Silver Cage' and 'The Original Torch Singer', she embodied to image of the tortured lover with no other outlet for her suffering than to sing.
