That Kind of Woman : The Life and Career of Barbara Nichols
By Richard Koper
Barbara Nichols excelled in playing sassy, wisecracking "not so dumb" blondes. She was determined to reach stardom and on her way up she overpowered most of her competitors, but also made friends for life. Barbara Nichols, destined to play supporting parts in several classic movies, is one of the best examples of the phrase "There are no small parts, only small actors," she was often called upon to etch a striking characterization in a short amount of time.
Richard Koper, author of Affectionately, Jayne Mansfield, researched in depth over several years to write the biography, That Kind of Woman: The Life and Career of Barbara Nichols which profiles the life and career of one of Hollywood's finest character actresses and comediennes. Over two hundred rare photographs are featured as well as a complete filmography and a listing of her most memorable television appearances.
