It is difficult to be genuinely and passionately interested in stars whose films one has not seen. Sadly, most of the films of the actresses featured in this book are unavailable for viewing either due to decomposition or lack of commercial release.
Therefore, this book requires prior knowledge and interest in silent films on the whole. Without such knowledge, anecdotes about other famous stars such as Mary Pickford, Cecil B. DeMille, and Zasu Pitts become meaningless.
Overall, this book is a nice contribution to the archives of silent film history simply because the words came from the stars themselves.
