This book is okay, but be aware...
on June 26, 2012
...that at least 50% of it is the footnotes and filmography on each interview...so there is not really much text. I was a little disappointed as the interviews were fairly short, and often the pages listing the films and every player in each of the, were longer than the chapter itself.
I had never heard of most of the actors portrayed in this book and I have read many books on the early days of Hollywood. It is a shame that so many actors who were considered stars in their time are not known at all now.
Most of them had good memories of their Hollywood days, with a few having left their careers early and never looking back. None were bitter, no juicy stories here.
