About this title


Part of the Encore Film Book Classics series, this is a reprint of the original text to Hollywood Players: The Thirties by James Robert Parish and William T. Leonard. To be in the movies in the 1930s was to be in the right place at the right time. It was the heyday of Hollywood glitter and glamour. This fact-filled volume of 71 stalwarts from Hollywood’s Golden Age brings it all back in vivid detail. Hollywood, even in its golden years, had only a handful of international box-office names. Right behind them came the second rank: notable, talented players but not quite big enough to often attract top-rung attention from movie historians—until Hollywood Players: The Thirties. With this major work, nearly six dozen important actors and actresses are given their proper due. This volume toasts the working stiffs of the movies. Whether white-furred beauties, cloth-capped cabbies, gun-slinging cops or bad guys, best friends, cute kids or exotic foreigners, they represented The World as Hollywood (and we) saw it. Profiled within are: Eddie Albert, Hardie Albright, Robert Armstrong, Lynn Bari, Binnie Barnes, John Beal, Louise Beavers, Ralph Bellamy, Charles Bickford, John Boles, Mary Brian, Bruce Cabot, Helen Chandler, Mae Clarke, Donald Cook, Buster Crabbe, Richard Cromwell, Constance Cummings, Frances Dee, Brian Donlevy, James Dunn, Ann Dvorak, Sally Eilers, Frances Farmer, Glenda Farrell, Stepin Fetchit, Preston Foster, Skeets Gallagher, William Gargan, Wynne Gibson, Bonita Granville, Mitzi Green, Richard Greene, Phillips Holmes, Ian Hunter, Josephine Hutchinson, Kay Johnson, Allan Jones, Victor Jory, Arline Judge, Paul Kelly, Elissa Landi, Francis Lederer, Eric Linden, Margaret Lindsay, Anita Louise, Paul Lukas, David Manners, Burgess Meredith, Douglass Montgomery, Dickie Moore, Chester Morris, Wayne Morris, Lloyd Nolan, Jack Oakie, Gail Patrick, Roger Pryor, Gene Raymond, Gilbert Roland, Cesar Romero, Simone Simon, Penny Singleton, Anna Sten, Gloria Stuart, Genevieve Tobin, Lee Tracy, Helen Twelvetrees, Jane Withers, Anna May Wong, Fay Wray, and Jane Wyatt. In Hollywood Players: The Thirties, the authors provide a memorable panorama of 1930s Hollywood and many of its most appreciated and well-remembered performers.
