The true story of a popular singer who broke all the rules and paid the ultimate price.
A stunning, velvety-voiced crooner who drew raves from Walter Winchell and Cole Porter, Jan Welles was perched on the brink of stardom, when she faced an impossible choice: deny her lesbianism or abandon the career she had worked a lifetime to achieve. Ranging from the dazzling lights of Broadway to dusty bullfighting rings in the Dominican Republic, flings with Lana Turner and Paulette Goddard to an attempted rape by Broadway impresario Billy Rose, Jan Welles's tale is a saucy story of achievement, danger, and the ultimate triumph of being true to yourself.
Jan Welles was a singer for RKO records and was a regular on The Arthur Godfrey Show, where she was known as the Stardust Girl, as well as on The Steve Allen Show. She was also the first woman bullfighter in Mexico. She now lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
