Karl Dane’s life was a Cinderella story gone horribly wrong. The immigrant from Copenhagen was rapidly transformed from a machinist to a Hollywood star after his turn as the tobacco-chewing Slim in The Big Parade in 1925. After that, Dane appeared in more than 40 films with such luminaries as Lillian Gish, John Gilbert and William Haines until development of talkies virtually ruined his career. The most famous casualty of the transition from silent to sound film, Dane reportedly lost his career because of his accent. He was broke and alone at the height of the Depression and committed suicide in 1934.

Here is the first extensive, full-length biography and career record on the life and work of Mexican whirlwind Lupe Vélez (1908–1944). Over the years many crude myths have surfaced about Vélez, the most notorious that she “died with her head in the toilet.” This biography not only studies Lupe’s personal life and career—including her tempestuous marriage to Johnny Weissmuller—but also examines her death in detail. It has been almost seven decades since her untimely end; at long last, the ugly rumors and myths are debunked—for good. Included are never-before-told family stories and photographs from Lupe’s second cousin, and an analysis of the actress’s lasting influence on popular culture. The foreword by Oscar-winning film historian Kevin Brownlow focuses on the fact and fancy behind Lupe Vélez’s colorful public image.

Individually and together, The Five Sedgwicks are among the unsung heroes of early filmmaking in Hollywood. Their work took them from vaudeville to silent film, through the studio era and into the Golden Age of television. By the late 1920s the Sedgwick siblings were well-known motion picture personalities: Edward was satirized by actor Harry Gribbon as an enthusiastic comedy director in King Vidor’s 1928 silent comedy hit Show People; Josie was a star of Western films and was presented the honorific title of “Queen of the Roundup”; Universal Films promoted Eileen as their “Queen of the Serial.” This book details the family’s extensive contributions to the entertainment industry.
