Now Screen World editor Barry Monush has compiled an essential work for every film lover's library. This book chronicles the careers of every significant film actor, from the earliest silent screen stars-including marquee names such as Chaplin, Pickford, Fairbanks-through to the mid-1960s, when the old studio and star systems came crashing down. Each listing includes: a brief biography; photos from the famed Screen World archives, with many rare shots; vital statistics; a comprehensive filmography; and an informed, entertaining assessment of each actor's contributions-good or bad In addition to every major player, Monush includes the legions of unjustly neglected troupers of yesteryear. The result is a rarity: an invaluable reference tool that's as much fun to read as a scandal sheet.
