About the Author

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It covers Academy Award winners from the period commonly referred to as the Golden Age (1927-1950). Since I am stuck in a time warp and love this period ----its movies, stars, directors--- this book was a lot of fun. The author provided a biography, photos, and good directions to the celebrities graves and did a thorough job on all counts.
Having recently read a book that attempted to do this with poor results (a good editor was sorely needed), I probably appreciated this book even more because the entire package was beautifully executed, accurate, and interesting. The publisher, which apparently specializes in a special market, does a remarkable job with their books and this one was no exception.
This is a great book for anyone infatuated with Hollywood and its golden age.
