World Guide to Film Stars by Thomas G. Aylesworth & John S. Bowman
With foreward by Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

World Guide to Film Stars is a comprehensive collection of alphabetically arranged biographies of more than 1,400 movie stars ranging from Bud Abbott to George Zucco. Spanning the silent movie era to present-day screen personalities, each entry presents a selected filmography of the star’s performances and notes Oscar nominations and awards.

This work not only covers such big stars as Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe and Katharine Hepburn, but also such lesser-known stars as Paul Muni and Ruth Chatterton, and character actors from the Golden Age - Frank Morgan, Henry Travers, Louis Calhern, Margaret Hamilton, and Margaret Dumont. There are entries for personalities from the earliest days of the silent - Lillian Gish, Rudolph Valentino, and Mary Pickford. There are the cowboys of countless westerns - G.M. “Bronco Billy” Anderson, Edward “Hoot” Gibson, and William S. Hart. And there are entries o the new stars of today and tomorrow - Alec Baldwin, Melanie Griffith, and Julia Roberts.

International in scope, the work also includes biographies of the great international stars - Sonia Braga, Gerard Depardieu, Alec Guinness, Toshiro Mifune, Fernando Rey, and Simone Signoret.

Illustrated with more than 350 stills and portraits, this is the book that will answer all those questions about who i (and who was) who in history of on-screen entertainers. It is certainly a reference work for serious students of film as well as the average movie fan.
