About the books:

“Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History”Nothing grabs the mind like a finely crafted film. Memorable lines strike an instant impression, and imagery provides celluloid art to enjoy time and again. Bypassing the legendary stars from the Studio Era’s Golden Age, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History focuses on the character actors such as Lionel Barrymore, Claude Rains, Walter Brennan, Thelma Ritter, Thomas Mitchell, and Basil Rathbone.

“Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History”: The long anticipated sequel to the award-winning Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History shares American stories through the eyes of character actors of Hollywood s Golden Age, such as Frank Morgan, Cesar Romero, Andy Devine, Peter Lorre, Majorie Main, Leo Gorcey, Jack Carson, Alan Hale Sr., Sydney Greenstreet, and Lon Chaney Jr. 

If you can’t wait to win the books, you can purchase them on amazon via the below link (click on images):

    Funny you should ask that question because I just caught about an hour of the movie on TV last night. Dustin Hoffman as Enrico Salvatore “Ratso” Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy. Still stands up after all these years. “I’m walkin’ here!!”

  2. Joan O'Malley says:

    I love Thelma Ritter in anything but her turn as Alma in Pillow Talk cracks me up every time. I love when she and Rock go drinking, and she drinks him under the table. You are my inspiration, Alma!!

  3. Sara Stewart says:

    Marjorie Main was fabulous as Ma Kettle, but I really loved her as Katie in Meet Me in St. Louis. Her wit and sarcastic nature always make me laugh.

  4. Miguel Alcala says:

    I am a big Don Knott’s fan, of course in the Andy Griffith show as Barney Fife, but in Threes Company as Mr. Furley! Always puts a smile on my face! Anytime he snorts like if hes some big bad dude, hahaha!

  5. david hartzog says:

    Elisha Cook, Jr. always brought a lot to the party, but his drum solo in Phantom Lady was the most, and became the most talked about scene in the film.

  6. Susan Bowman says:

    I love all the Marx Brothers films….

  7. David Hollingsworth says:

    Although he wasn’t an actor from the classic movie age, I truly loved Michael Jeter’s performance in “The Fisher King”. The scene where he delivers flowers and sings to Amanda Plummer was the arguably the best scene in the film. He nearly stole the entire film away from Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges with just that one scene. It was perfect.

    Edmund Gwenn in the Trouble with Harry gave such a wonderful performance. He is one of my favorite Character Actor’s.As for female Character actors I love Josephine Hull in Harvey.
