Tyrone Power was as versatile in life as he was on the screen. He was several men, and during the creation of this book I have been fortunate in having the other principal 'lead" in each of these lives as an active partner, coming very close at times to the point of collaboration. He was the last idol created by the vast star-making machine, Twentieth Century Fox. Coming from a family of multi-generational actors, Tyrone Power broke the proverbial mold. His on-screen charisma in the 30's and 40's propelled him to the forefront of the "must have" actors. His on-screen accomplishments were many yet he did not hesitate to enter the military when his country went to war. After the war, he continued in his career but the years took their toll. A fascinating look behind the scenes of Hollywood of the 30's and 40's and the impact of the times on a great actor.

These thorough bibliographic entries serve as a guide for those who wish to do further research into the first 35 years of talking pictures. A brief history of this era of films, the studio system, and the society of which they were a by-product adds context to the entries and accents their significance. The author has chosen 1965 as the cutoff date because it marked the end of the studio system and the beginning of the independent filmmaking era. This guide highlights the people and the art of the glamorous days of filmmaking in which actors and actresses set the standards by which all actors have been measured since. The abundance of data collected in this guide reflects the exhaustive wealth of films and personalities associated with the golden age of moviemaking. Based on certain criteria such as the amount and availability of bibliographical material, notoriety, critical acclaim, and the number and quality of awards, the author has carefully selected the works and people included in this reference. Current and comprehensive, this reference tool includes bibliographical information that provides both positive and negative criticism and appendices, including an extensive general bibliography, lists of film festivals around the world, schools offering advanced degrees in film, and film museums and archives in the United States.

Loretta Young (1913–2000) was an Academy Award–winning actress known for devout Catholicism and her performances in The Farmer’s Daughter, The Bishop’s Wife, and Come to the Stable, and for her long-running and tremendously popular television series. But that was not the whole story. Hollywood Madonna explores the full saga of Loretta Young’s professional and personal life. She made her film debut at age four, became a star at fifteen, and many awards and accolades later, made her final television movie at age seventy-six. This biography withholds none of the details of her affair with Clark Gable and the daughter that powerful love produced. Bernard F. Dick places Young’s affair in the proper context of the time and the choices available to women in 1935, especially a noted Catholic like Young, whose career would have been in ruins if the public knew of her tryst. With the birth of a daughter, who would have been branded a love child, Loretta Young reached the crossroads of disclosure and deception, choosing the latter path. That choice resulted in an illustrious career for her and a tortured childhood for her daughter.

George Sidney directed many popular Hollywood films, including Anchors Aweigh, Show Boat, Kiss Me Kate, and Viva Las Vegas. Despite their commercial success, Sidney's films seldom received critical acclaim, and his many other contributions to the industry remain unknown and unheralded. In this first serious, full-length study of Sidney's life and work, Monder reassesses Sidney's critical reputation, arguing that he was a cinematic iconoclast who created mainstream films with a strikingly modern sensibility. The critical introduction to the volume explains why Sidney's work has been underrated and how it cleverly deconstructs traditional formula material. The biography highlights Sidney's career during the Golden Age of Hollywood studio filmmaking, including his 14-year tenure as President of the Directors Guild of America. The detailed filmography documents the production histories of Sidney's many features, short subjects, screen tests, documentaries, and uncredited sequences in other directors' films. Drawing on archival materials and interviews with Sidney's former coworkers, Monder reveals little-known facts about Sidney's films, and his career as a Hollywood insider. Rare stills and photographs illustrate his unique visual style. In short, Monder reevaluates the contributions of a significant but neglected artist.
