A Legend Recognized

Mildred Burke was already featured here in the Blog and now she has a biography in the stores written by the renowned journalist Jeff Leen. I found the book´s summary quite interesting and the pictures were unknown to me. A candid book´s review is in the New York Times of today.

And Mildred was a real beauty!

  1. This is great news - a serious look at the greatest female pro wrestler. I read the review and it seems that the author agrees that the '54 June Byers / Burke match was a shoot, possibly the last one ever (Richter - Moolah / Spider Lady could be considered one I guess.

    Burke was also the forerunner of the FBB look - what a physique she had for the time.
