About the Author:

Eileen Karsten (Barat College; MALS, Rosary College) is Head of Technical Services and Assistant Professor of Bibliography, North Park College and Theological Seminary, IL. Her research for this book was initiated by a reference question which could not even be answered in any current reference source. This is her first book.

Review:

Indexes by performer, title, subject, and date of release will make this a useful source for comprehensive cinema collections. (Journal of Academic Librarianship)

...provides a quick and convenient overview of all major sound films, released in the United States, dealing with real-life individuals....will have a lot of use primarily in libraries, but should also be of some value to individual film buffs. (Classic Images)

Karsten's book fills a gap in film reference literature. Every serious film collection needs it. (Wilson Library Bulletin)

...this work is an outstanding contribution to the library community....will be greatly appreciated by students of film studies, film buffs, lovers of biography in films and those persons...who simply wish to know if a film about the life of George Washington was ever produced. (Movie Collector's World)

...this worthwhile book intends to list 'all the major biographical films and documentaries shown in the U.S. since the advent of sound'...liberal cross-references and indexes of performers, film titles, and release dates. An index to categories of biographees is creative...Recommended for general collections. (CHOICE)

This volume will serve a purpose for academic or large public libraries with a film-studies collection. (Booklist)

Filling an overlooked reference niche.... (American Reference Books Annual)
