I love reading about the movies and stars of the "old" days - they had imagination and courage in a brand new industry and everything they did was done for the first time. They did not have the technology of today and, therefore, had to figure out how to do everything that we take for granted today.
I ordered Platinum Girl (bio of Jean Harlow) by Eve Golden - I received it yesterday and am looking forward to curling up and devouring it.
Anyone who is interested in the history of movies should add Golden Images to his/her collection.
I recommend this book for all lovers of the silent era. I only wish that Ms.Golden could do full length bios on these people.
Eve Golden is a favorite among film writers. She has written biographies on such film iconic stars as Theda Bara, Jean Harlow, and John Gilbert, as well as on lesser remembered names such as Kay Kendall, Anna Held, and Irene and Vernon Castle. Yet all these books are well-researched
and well-written, and well worth the read. Her fans, myself included, have always enjoyed her sometimes off-beat humor, her delving into the rare and obscure aspects and biographies of rarely written about stars. With GOLDEN IMAGES, Golden has succeeded in giving us a foretaste of fascinating film history. And her work in some regards stands apart from the norm. This is a must read.
Otherwise, great book!
I could go on forever about this book, but I think I'll leave you all with a quote from my favorite silent movie: " ".
