Welcome to Classic Hollywood Biographies. If you are an admirer of the talents contained in the pages, I hope you will enjoy the photos, vintage movie magazine covers and overviews of the lives of some of the greatest classic movie stars from Hollywood's golden age. With any luck, you may discover new information, an anecdote you've never heard or have a misconception about an actor cleared up. Hopefully, you will come away with a better understanding of the actors and actresses you admire.
If you have surfed onto this web site expecting biting criticism or longwinded scholarly filmographies, then you are in the wrong place and should probably make a hasty retreat. All the biographies contained herein are written from a viewpoint of appreciation with more than a dash of sentiment mixed in.
As little as 25 years ago, the images of these great talents could only be found at movie revival houses or grainy copies on the late show. With the advent of digital film and sound restoration as well as satellite, digital cable, VHS and DVD, the details of their stellar performances are clear and crisp.The actors' youth, vitality and talent have never been more touchingly evident. We have never seen them so clearly and somehow it makes these legendary and now almost mythical film icons all the more real to us.

Series Regulars of the Fifties and Sixties In Interview (McFarland Publishing)
