About the Author: The author is a researcher (Ph. D., U. Cal. Davis in microbiology; postdoctoral studies at Univ. of West Berlin, Germany). His life-long hobby is memorabilia about movie stars and so he would like to explain the origins of this book. For over a decade he had been meeting with his friend, Bob Carlitz, also a movie buff and a retired accountant, at a coffee shop in South Palo Alto. There they exchanged film memorabilia about movie stars mainly in the from of various lists, such as the following : 1. Celebrity Accidental Deaths. 2. Celebrity Suicides. 3. Celebrities Who Were Murdered Or Were Victims of Manslaughter. 4. Female Celebrities Who Died Before Age 50. 5. Male Celebrities Who Died Before Age 50. 6. Celebrities Who Lived Past Age 90. 7. Real Names of Film Celebrities. However, Bob Carlitz could only furnish a few real names of movie stars and so the author decided to search the movie reference books of local libraries and the Internet for more of these real names. Just as he had surmised thousands of real names of movie stars were found among these 2 sources. The author , then concluded that it would be convenient and a timesaver if these names could all be compiled into one book. Believing that it would be an injustice to neglect movie stars besides the real names and pseudonyms of film choreographers, directors, producers, columnists, screenwriters and songwriters this book includes their real names also. According to co-author Eddie Colbert the sources of several real names of film celebrities were verified by the celebrities themselves, such as Joe Dallesandro, Myrna Dell, Ed Fury, Tab Hunter, Christopher Jones, and Noreen Nash. Dates of death of all movie stars are listed through December, 2009. Co-author Eddie Colbert has an extensive background and experience in Hollywood. In the 1950's he worked at RKO Studios and he became a celebrity photographer in the early 1960's. He did the first photos of many aspiring actors who became Big Stars, such as Troy Donahue, Warren Beatty, Ryan O'Neal, Connie Stevens, etc. Most of the celebrity photos in this book belong to Mr. Colbert's private collection; he currently resides in West Hollywood, California.
