Editorial Reviews

The Chronicle-Herald
"Stardust and Shadows is a fascinating read - with some surprising revelations - for anyone with an interest in the early days of Hollywood and an eye-opener for those unaware of the rold Canadians played in the film industry's infancy."
— Bruce Erskine
From the Publisher

"Foster has done a wonderful job of documenting the lives of some of the personalities of the silent era who may otherwise have just as easily disappeared into obscurity. This is a quality hardback, and the photos are excellently reproduced. Get it for your silent movie library."
