Description:This is a portrait of Barbara Cartland,the phenomenal best selling Queen of Romance. The most prolific and best selling author of her day,she wrote over 700 books,was the first author to be both No 1 and No 2 on the US best selling list,and sold her tales of yearning romance to practically every country in the world. She was a life force and a paradox. Astonishingly energetic,demanding and famously bossy,she nevertheless celebrated the idea of feminine subservience to men. Yet behind Barbara's romantic faand#231;ade lay real life tragic tales. The film examines Barbara's unrequited and lost loves and reveals how her total immersion into the world of romance was actually an escape from her much darker reality.
