9780810835474: The Ultimate Directory of Silent and Sound Era Performers

A follow-up to The Ultimate Directory of the Silent Screen Performers (1995), this text includes the birth, death, and career dates of actors during the transition from silents to sound and into the sound era in filmmaking. The book includes individuals from Europe, Asia, Australia, and North and South America, ranging from stars and featured actors to character and minor actors. The reader will find actors that bridge the silent and the sound eras, actors from the "Golden Age of Hollywood," and actors who straddle the big screen and the small screen of television.

Information is included on thousands of actors from throughout the world, creating a populated map of film history. With the continued popularity of classic films, from early Hollywood and around the world, The Ultimate Directory of Silent and Sound Era Performers will be a welcome resource.

About the Author:

Billy H. Doyle is a retired school teacher and writer who lives in Valley Station, Kentucky.

From Library Journal:

From marquee stars of the pastAlike Humphrey Bogart and Bette DavisAto obscure character actors, this volume provides an alphabetical list of over 15,000 actors and actresses from around the world who made their way into U.S. films. They include performers who had both silent and sound careers and performers who acted in both films and television. Each entry includes the actor's date and place of birth, date and place of death, and, frequently, dates of their screen career. This volume is a companion to Doyle's two previous necrologies (The Ultimate Directory of the Silent Screen Performers, Scarecrow, 1995; The Ultimate Directory of Film Technicians, Scarecrow, 1999); in this latest volume, there's an addendum of silent performers not included in Doyle's earlier book. Be advised, though: necrologies often serve merely to whet the user's appetite for information; most people will find this volume helpful only when consulted in conjunction with other directories, dictionaries, biographies, or a tool like the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com). Larger libraries will find this volume a good supplement to their film reference sources, and serious film buffs will want it for their home libraries.AKathy Breeden, Univ. of Tennessee at Chattanooga Lib.
