Synopsis: Featuring over one hundred major portraits and two hundred thumbnail sketches, Great Jews in Entertainment is a glorious celebration of Jews in the performing arts. Darryl Lyman, author of the acclaimed biographical works Great Jews in Music and Great Jewish Families, salutes outstanding actors, singers, comedians, and musicians whose contributions to the world of entertainment have been truly extraordinary. Great Jews in Entertainment pays tribute to such charismatic personalities as Billy Crystal, that "MAHvelous" comedic actor whose hilarious yet poignant impressions and warm, gentle style have endeared him to fans of all ages. Bette Midler, the self-styled Divine Miss M, who overcame her sensitivity about being "a fat little Jewish girl with problems" to become one of the greatest singing and acting sensations of all time. Jerry Seinfeld, who after many lean years as a standup comic went on to create and star in his own highly successful situation comedy "about nothing." Barbra Streisand, a Brooklynite who landed the role of Fanny Brice in the Broadway musical Funny Girl and soared to stardom virtually overnight. Bob Dylan, the "on-the-edge" singer/songwriter who rose to the head of the 1960s folk movement and later went on to spark the creation of a new musical genre called folk-rock. From such legendary stars as Luther Adler, Lauren Bacall, Morris Carnovsky, Lee J. Cobb, and Zero Mostel to such "hot" contemporary celebrities as Natalie Portman, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Lisa Kudrow, this delightful volume informs and entertains as it applauds the work of Jewish artists who have given us countless hours of pleasure.

About the Author: Darryl Lyman's biographical works include Great Jewish Families, Jewish Heroes and Heroines: Their Unique Achievements, Great African-American Women, and Great Jews in Music. Among his other titles are Dictionary of Animal Words and Phrases; Civil War Quotations; and Civil War Wordbook, which was nominated for the prestigious Lincoln Prize at Gettysburg College. Mr. Lyman has contributed film reviews to Magill's Cinema Annual and coedited Fifty Years of Oscar, the Official History of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Darryl Lyman resides in San Jacinto, California.
