Format: Paperback
a fascinating and thorough reference book on child actors in hollywood's early days.i was just curious why "sunny jim"mckeen,who did the "newlywed"comedies in the 1920's playing"baby snookums"was not mentioned?he only lived to be 8 years old(dying in 1933 of blood poisoning)and was so famous at the time he even had a candy bar named after him. i hope someone one day does a book about the "newlywed"comedies and a bio of "sunny jim" included with it,and also universal,who owns the rights to the "newlywed" comedies of the 20's puts them one day on dvd,otherwise this is a fantastic book and i recommend it completely!!

Good reading, not just for film buffs only! Diana Serra Cary gives a rare, revealing glimpse into the world of children in show business.Although it's subject is early child film stars,it's message is very relevant to today's society as well.Well worth the effort!

Ms Cary is an excellent writer. Her memory and her research are incredible. I love Old Hollywood, and I learned so much from this book. The pictures were truly a great bonus.
