America's dream capital achieved its greatest influence in the '30s, when many of these now-gone stars were at their peak, and lasted until television invaded American living rooms in the '50s. Chosen for inclusion were men and women who were universally recognized as "stars" in the Hollywood sense, and who were no longer alive as of December 31, 1988. Fred Astaire, Jack Benny, Charlie Chaplin, Gary Cooper, Joan Crawford, Bing Crosby, Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Al Jolson, Vivien Leigh, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Will Rogers, Gloria Swanson, Spencer Tracy, Mae West-these are a few of the 81 stars covered, with biographies and filmographies of each. Numerous movie stills, complete index.
