From Library Journal:

Juran has picked 89 character actors, and for each he provides a photo, filmography, and biography, usually three or four pages in length. Actors covered include Charles Bickford, Andy DeVine, Margaret Hamilton, Peter Lorre, and others of similar repute. After a few paragraphs describing the actor's screen persona and early life, Juran zips perfunctorily through his subject's film career. Although not the only collection on supporting players, this book is more accurate than many of its kind, and the author has concentrated on Hollywood rather than British players. Buy for special collections in public and academic libraries where the books of James Robert Parish are popular.?John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.

Review:

Almost ninety biographies of movie character actors and actresses of Hollywood's golden era provide details on the supporting players of the times, blending biographical backgrounds with film chronologies and credits. An excellent, fun guide. -- Midwest Book Review
