Editorial Reviews

Review

"A morbidly glamorous volume." Los Angeles Magazine March 2011

Recommended read. Orange Coast Magazine, June 2011

"Fade to Black" is a strong pick for any diehard fan of classic cinema. The Midwest Book Review. July 2011

"Fade to Black" is indeed an illuminating collection of short memoirs...and captures the history of cinema. Sacramento Book Review, September 2011

"This is an enjoyable read offering more then the interesting anecdotes and history so well described by Michael Barry, but an opportunity for loyal fans to pay their respects to those they love and admire. Thank you Michael for your gift and I hope others enjoy it as much as I have." Celeste Holm, Academy Award winning actress November 16, 2010.

By G.I Gurdjieff TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 14, 2012
Format: Paperback
I picked this up at an LA bookstore last year and then sort of forgot about it when I got home. Rediscovered this a few days ago and totally blew a good part of my day.
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.
