Autobiography written By Eva Bartok.
By the late 1960's Eva Bartok decided to retire from acting to pursue other interests. This was at a time when some very talented film directors were entering the business.
Eva Bartok would have worked well with the French New Wave film directors - but she declined all work offers to pursue her other interests.
A general view in the Film Industry is that Eva Bartok did not fulfil her true potential and was a far better actress than many of her peers at that time.
In the final years of her life, Eva lived in a Hotel, in Paddington, London,England. Here she lived a quiet life,alone and contented with her own company, an intelligent woman, an exceptional actress who had a very gentle nature and a smile, which could capture your heart.
