New Book: Silent Voices - Vintage Interviews...

PostMon Apr 17, 2017 10:09 am

Please excuse the blatant self promotion.

SILENT VOICES: VINTAGE INTERVIEWS WITH SILENT FILM PERSONALITIES.
Edited by Shane Brown.
Available in paperback and Kindle editions from Amazon.
314 pages.

Around a hundred years ago, film fan magazines were emerging from their infancy to become some of the most-read periodicals of their day. These were places where cinema-goers could read with anticipation about new releases, as well catch up on Hollywood gossip, see glamourous pictures of their favourite actors and actresses, and read interviews with (and articles by) some of the great stars and directors of the day.

"Silent Voices" collects together twenty-eight of these interviews and articles (many out of print since their original publication in the 1910s and 1920s), covering a dozen different screen personalities of the period: Renée Adorée, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Theda Bara, Clara Bow, Carol Dempster, Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Robert "Bobby" Harron, Johnny Hines, F. W. Murnau, George O'Brien, and Jack Pickford.


Also included is an introduction, footnotes, and a supplementary article by yours truly about Jack Pickford's relationship with the press.

NB. Please note that the Amazon sample pages are showing from an earlier draft of the book - not sure why - but the version you will receive is correct.
