Product Description

Product Description

Fred Astaire, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich - the stars of the silver screen may be gone but their legends survive. Together, the 36 obituaries in this ebook capture the leading lights of Hollywood's Golden Age - when cinema ruled people's imaginations and actors represented unreachable but compelling heights of glamour and success.

Introduced by the inimitable Ronald Bergan, these short biographies are full of the life of their subject. Portraits caught in the flashbulb of a camera, they offer a heady picture, rich in drama, scandal and human frailty, of Hollywood's Golden Age.
