I just finished No Bells

I'm not intersted in a biography or notes by other people. I just finished No Bells. It held my interest thru out tho it bogged down a bit in the middle - especially with all the acting roles she was and wasn't involved in. However, it was interesting to read the quotes from her friends and colleagues.

No Bells on Sunday book. Rachel Roberts was a brilliant actress, but also a woman riddled.

Rachel Roberts, fourth wife of actor Rex Harrison, remained obsessed with Harrison after their divorce. Egocentric and ambitious, the award-winning actress became an alcoholic, then committed suicide in 1980.

Rachel Roberts Journals are heart wrenching to read how this woman had everything Long live Rachel Roberts whom I hope found her peace at last.

Rachel Roberts Journals are heart wrenching to read how this woman had everything. lost it all, through drink, drugs and too high an espectation of what life being an actor means, She lived in dreams, got her dream, ruined the dream and had an horrendous end. I read the book within two days because what she wrote about how she felt about herself and her life, is tragic and compelling. I will remember Rachel Roberts for the Emmy Award Winning films she starred in and not the woman behind the mask, with the up turned nose that ruined her self confindence

Unfortunately, I bought the book based on the cover (yes, I judged a book by its cover). It states "The Rachel Roberts Journals edited by Alexander Walker", (VERY MISLEADING) so that's what I expected. Dates and entries. I'm not intersted in a biography or notes by other people. If I had saw this in a book store and opened it, I never would have bought it. I read The Richard Burton Diaries edited by Chris Williams, and that's exactly what it is. Dates and entries.
The book is difficult to read because I had to skim passed all the stuff that I have no interest in on each page looking for something actually written by Rachel Roberts, which isn't that much.

I just finished No Bells. It held my interest thru out tho it bogged down a bit in the
middle -- especially with all the acting roles she was and wasn't involved in.
However, it was interesting to read the quotes from her friends and colleagues.
As it drew to the close, I got depressed reading about her horrible depression.
I felt it was so terribly sad that a woman who had so much talent and opportunity
couldn't tame "the demons" in the end.
Cel
Such a true tragedy to read of Rachel's unraveling, but through it all, she remained and remains one of the greatest actresses (and as it turns out) writers ever. RECOMMEND
Hra
She was a sad piece of work. Very needy. Well written though, but hard to get through. Not sure I can recommend it.
Haal
This book is very sad to read. The poor woman's depression overwhelmed her so much that she couldn't see what an exciting and lucky life she actually had. It was very informative to me what depression does to someone's mind and way of thinking. I never realized the inherent pain they suffer
Puchock
This biography of the late, great Rachel Roberts is very well written (if somewhat sanitized). Ms. Roberts, the Welsh actress who was the 4th Mrs. Rex Harrison, had a very sad life post her divorce from Harrison. This book is based on part on her own journals which were discovered after she committed suicide in Los Angeles in November of 1980. The book details her depression and alcoholism which plagued her most of her adult life and certainly contributed to the demise of her marriage to Harrison. Her behaviour was certainly outlandish and her drunken rampages are the stuff of legend. This book details (much of it in Ms. Robert's own words) her downward spiral which culminated in her suicide at the age of 53. It is sad that the woman never got the help she so desperately needed. This book is very intruiguing and yet very sad at the same time.
POFOD
This book consists of Rachel Roberts' diary entries, interspersed with biographical info about her. You really feel that you come to know what goes on inside this woman. However, reading this book is extremely depressing. Roberts had a bit of a warped notion of the world and what is important. Money, fame and prestige seemed to be paramount in her life. And she obsessed about Rex Harrison and the luxuries he could give her.
She had quite an illustrious career but the woman needed therapy and a stay at a rehab clinic.
I recommend this book, however. One gets a sort of voyeuristic look into her private life, by reading her diary entries.
A great story that was very fragmented -- which reflected her personality. So be prepared for some very intense reading peppered with angst about being madly in love with someone who doesn't love you back. And instead of realizing the object of her attentions wasn't worth it, she thought herself as worthless. Stroeis like this usually end in tragedy.
