"Few know the gritty byways of Hollywood moviemaking in the studio era as well as Bernard Dick, an accomplished biographer and film historian. In The President's Ladies he writes with aplomb and authority, backed by formidable research, about the performing careers of Ronald Reagan and his two very different actress wives, Jane Wyman and Nancy Davis, one a longtime star whose work overshadowed his, the other a minor talent who became a major political wife. I learned a great deal about their many film projects from this book." --Morris Dickstein, author of Gates of Eden and Dancing in the Dark
