No, it's not the type of book you can curl up with for a thrilling read but if you want to find out about an obscure
Cecil B. DeMille movie "'Till I Come Back to You" you will find it in "The Movies of World War One" chapter or
why Harold Lloyd's "Dr. Jack" was like a breath of fresh air in the melting pot of medico melodramas go to "The
Doctor on the Screen" chapter.
Jack Spears was a prolific contributor to "Films in Review" one of the few magazines that gave serious appraisal
to films and players of Hollywood's golden age. The book is comprised of extensively rewritten articles by him that
appeared in the magazine, on everything from "Comic Strips on the Screen" to the emoting of Norma Talmadge.
Yes, there are a few genre chapters (baseball etc) but who doesn't want to know about comic strips - the history
of Joe Palooka, the popularity of Blondie, how "Tillie the Toiler" was first introduced in the movies as a Marian
Davies movie. Also strips not as well known today but made into top class movies - "Skippy" (1931) and "Harold
Teen" (1928 and 1934). There is also an amazingly informative chapter on "Mary Pickford's Directors" - she had
a very diverse set including autocratic Cecil B. DeMille, the sensitive Maurice Tourneur, her own discovery Marshall
Neilan (given a chapter to himself) and the flamboyant Ernst Lubitsch (Pickford didn't really cotton on to his
continental ways). Even Mary's wastral brother Jack had a couple of assignments but according to people on the
set he was a director in name only.
One of my favourite directors Robert Florey also has a chapter - he was a French reporter sent over to Hollywood
by "Cinemagazine" to interview Max Linder (also with a chapter), Leatrice Joy, Shirley Mason and Tom Mix and
liked it so much he decided to stay. He did direct grade A films ("The Cocoanuts") but he could work miracles with a
tight budget and in films like "Preview Murder Mystery" and "Hollywood Boulevard" his flair (he had directed a few
experimental films in the late 1920s) and a true love of Hollywood and the older, forgotten stars shine through.
Last but not least there is a 30 page article on Colleen Moore, nicknamed "The Perfect Flapper". She started off
as an ingénue in the late teens (1918), her career was given a push by Marshall Neilan and she was then away,
appearing in some of the most charming and popular films of the 1920s ("Flaming Youth", "Irene" and "Ella Cinders").
She could have made a great success in the talkies as her astonishing portrayal in "The Power and the Glory" (1933)
shows but by then she had had enough and probably just wanted to retire and concentrate on her doll's house.
Again, at the end there is a complete filmography on each individual star written about.
In a series of colorful excursions into the golden era of Hollywood, the author nostalgically recaptures the romance of motion pictures from silents to Cinerama. This book is a collection of sprightly, intelligent, and entertaining essays on motion picture history and film personalities that will delight every fan. The articles in this volume were originally published by the author in "Films In Review" (1955-1968), the distinguished magazine of motion picture history, and they have been completely revised, expanded, and updated with much new material. They cover a broad spectrum of memorable history - from the role of the movies in propagandizing World War I to vivid, behind-the-camera glimpses of Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin. The photographs (over 200 of them) of the personalities and their movies are the final touches that make this book one of the most expansive, authoritative, and enjoyable volumes of film history ever published.
