THE SOUND OF SILENCE brings stars out of obscurity,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sound of Silence: Conversations with 16 Film and Stage Personalities Who Bridged the Gap Between Silents and Talkies (Library Binding)
Michael Ankerich's follow-up to BROKEN SILENCE is another nice achievement. Among those forgotten stars he brings out of obscurity are Hugh Carroll(?) [I'm going by memory] and Pauline Curley. Pauline Curley reportedly is in very poor health and not expected to live much longer. She just turned 94. Some of the people covered have since died. The only thing I noticed that detracts from the book is the manner in which Ankerich makes so many references to himself. He comes off as rather conceited, whether he really is or not. Overall, this is a fine job and a great service to the stars covered as well as their fans.
