Item #12189 The Hollywood Hissables. Gregory William Mank.

The Hollywood Hissables

Scarecrow Press. 1989. hardcover. "The "Hissables" are actors and one actress who featured prominently as villians in American films in the 1930s and 1940s: Lionel Atwill, John Carradine, Lon Chaney Jr., Laird Cregar, Brian Donlevy, Claude Rains, Basil Rathbone, George Sanders, and Gale Sondergaard. Mank's approach is to show the entire career of his subjects and comment on their personal lives and their performances in various media. The still photographs are well chosen. The name index, title index, bibliography, and a separate listing of each performer's work are quite valuable to the researcher. Interesting book for the student of film as well as the nostalgic film buff."-Choice Review. Very good+, appears unread. Item #12189
