"Stardust and Shadows: Canadians in Early Hollywood"

by Charles Foster (Dundurn Press, 2000, 408 pages)

It's really amazing the number of Candians who were who not just minor players, but major players in the history of early cinema. This is second book of this format to come along in the past two years (Jeanine Basinger's Silent Stars being the other) but with the unique "Canadian" theme this time. Divided into individual chapters which serve as mini-biographies of 18 influential personalities from the first 30 years of motion pictures, this book is the result of 50 years of research by the author and provide enjoyable reading. Highly recommended!! FOR AN EXTENDED REVIEW OF THIS BOOK, CLICK HERE!
