If you don't know the name, you'll certainly remember the face and those performances. Anybody who appreciates films from the 1930s-1950s has seen Alan Mowbray's work in literally hundreds of movies. Mowbray was once called "one of Hollywood's most experienced character actors." That, and he made a name for himself on the stage, while elevating TV guest appearances to an art form.

Here's the book to flesh out the other parts of his life. Written by Mowbray himself (with editing from his son, Alan Mowbray Jr.) the book covers his years in the trenches of WWI....his arrival and early struggles in the U.S....his cronies in Hollywood.....and his family. Best of all are the anecdotes and quotes. Where it leaves off, seemingly unfinished (maybe it was still a work in progress when he died?), the addition of an appendix containing several movie magazine articles helps round out the story.

This book is a great addition to my personal library.
