Summary
For fans of musicals, singing, Hollywood history, and the lives of stars, no other work equals this new three-volume reference to the on- and off-camera careers of more than 100 performers who made major contributions to the American screen musical. From June Allyson to Mae West, Hollwood Songstersprovides a detailed narrative-ranging from 2,000 to 5000 words each-of the lives and careers of stars forever etched in our memories. Each description is informative, engaging, and fun, yet the scrupulous attention to detail and accuracy ensures that even the most knowledgeable scholar will learn something new. Each entry includes a filmography, discography (of both albums and CDs), Broadway appearances, radio work, television appearances and series,and a full-page photo of the subject. A complete index of names of performers, films, and songs rounds out the work. This is the ideal reference work for everyone one from the mildly curious to the hard-core fan.
