9780020121404: Scream Queens: Heroines of the Horrors

I just loved this book. "Scream Queens" features chapters on just about every actress who ever screamed in the movies. Beck has written very informative mini-biographies on some really wonderful actresses. From old favourites like Brigitte Helm, Mary Philbin, Fay Wray, Joan Crawford, Mae Clarke (there is a huge chapter on Barbara Steele) to rather interesting ones ie Diana Dors, Patty McCormack, Hazel Court, Acquanetta and Vampira - there is an excellent overall view of their careers with special emphasis on their horror roles. The book is dedicated to Barry Brown, an up and coming actor and enthusiastic film historian, who, unfortunately, took his own life before the book was published. He did an excellent chapter on Katharine Victor. I didn't know who she was before but after, I felt I did.
