When I think about Old Hollywood film stars I think about their movies but also think about their lives.  Where they happy? Did they love the work they did? Were they funny in real life? Today with social media there is so much you can learn about a person but back then we had interviews that often were not shared with the entire public. Interviews that have become hard to find even with the amazing tool that is Youtube.

Imagine a source where you can read interviews of your favorite Old Hollywood stars and really get insight into their personalities. The authors of Conversation with Classic Film Stars: Interviews from Hollywood's Golden Era, James Bawden and Ron Miller put together their treasure trove of years worth of interviews after they retired from their jobs as television columnists. Even better still, they took these interviews and transcribed them for us to read. I mean imagine reading about Glenn Ford and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. about heir careers as dashing leading men in film from their very own mouths.

What Bawden and Miller did to make the experience of reading these special and unique interviews even more special was to share brief but in-depth backgrounds about each film star. They also set up before each interview the wheres and whens the interviews took place. So if you are a visual person like I am you will be able to envision where these interviews took place and picture the film star speaking the words that they speak because of all the meticulous details the authors have shared.

I love all the books I share on my blog and frankly I wouldn't share them with you if I didn't love them. But this book is something extra special. I think if you love Old Hollywood films and their stars as much as I do then you would find this book to be an extra special read. I really felt as if I were there in the interviewers seat looking and speaking with these unique and talented individuals that many are no longer with us today.
