“`Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History and Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History are part of my award-winning literary series that shares America’s story through the eyes of character actors of Hollywood’s Studio Era. There are 36 supporting players who make up the various chapters in my books. I’ve just finished penning a third paperback in the series that includes 21 more players who lend their support to major cinematic stars. It is due out in the near future.
“`In April, Turner Classic Movies pays tribute to the fine folks who appear below the title of great cinema. I would like to think my literary work has influenced this long overdue homage.

Sakall, Frank Morgan, Beulah Bondi, Charles Coburn, William Bendix, Thomas Mitchell, Marjorie Main, Thelma Ritter, Ward Bond, and Walter Brennan.
