I need love,' declares Nola Noonan at the beginning of Glamour, Glory and Gold. She is a stylish young thing from the wrong side of the tracks who has the intelligence and ruthless ambition to make something of herself in the world, and who soon realizes that using sex is her only means to make her way 'to Hollywood, while there still is an Hollywood.' The play tells the story of Nola's life and degeneration from her start out in show business as a stripper to her success as a movie star/goddess, before she spirals into alcoholism and insanity. Any resemblance with past or present Hollywood stars is certainly not fortuitous. (Photo of D'arcy Drollinger Photo credit: by Mr. Means)
