Movie Starsby Gabriele Barrera (Text by)
Beginning with the first silent films to the "talkies" of the late 1920s and early 1930s to today’s blockbuster hits, movies have spawned icons for each generation. From Rudolph Valentino to Clark Gable to George Clooney, from Clara Bow to Katherine Hepburn to Angelina Jolie, this volume spotlights all our favorites. Starting with child stars like Shirley Temple and Drew Barrymore, the book is organized into chapters that spotlight femme fatales Mae West and Marilyn Monroe, rugged heroes like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, musical stars including Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and Judy Garland, comedians such as Danny Kaye and Woody Allen, and many more. A cast of thousands is featured in this splendid little compendium, bringing our favorite film stars into our own homes, all showcased in the vivid photographs and appealing format of White Star’s bestselling CubeBooks series. Packed with portraits and stills of memorable scenes from close to a century of movies, this generous little volume will win rave reviews from movie buffs of all ages.
