BAXTER, Anne. Intermission : A True Story. New York : G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1976). First Edition. Pp (16),17-384. 8vo, white cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Very good in nicked, unclipped dustjacket. Signed with inscription by Anne Baxter, and with a small photo of her laid in. . 70.00 "Academy Award-winning actress Anne Baxter writes with intensity and compassion about four years in the Australian outback. Adding another creative dimension to her career with this stunning first book, Miss Baxter continues in her lifelong tradition of collecting challenges the way some women collect diamonds. She fully recounts the greatest challenge of her life: moving, at the height of her career, to the harsh outback of Australia to be with the man she loved. The move to Australia, 8,670 miles from Hollywood, was in its way a wild “I dare you.” Here is the whole story of Miss Baxter’s attempt to fame and civilize a remote, harsh spot in the Australian wilderness and provide a home for her husband and two children. Interspersed throughout the book are flashbacks to Anne Baxter’s professional career: her stepping onto the Broadway stage for the first time at thirteen years of age and behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the casting and filming of such film classics as All About Eve, The Razor’s Edge, and I Confess. But always in the forefront of this remarkable book is Giro, the 37,000-acre cattle ranch 180 miles north of Sydney that was home for four years. The book throbs with high intelligence and a shining ambivalence. Miss Baxter is awed by Australia, yet is frequently the victim of the toughness of pioneer life, a toughness which ultimately took its toll and brought her back to America, but not before she hada chance to live out this unique adventure, brilliantly retold here."
