5 out of 5 stars Americas story through the eyes of character actors of Hollywoods Golden Age, March 9, 2011
By raideoman1
If you like TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES and THE HISTORY CHANNEL... this is the book for you. It combines forgotten stories of some of those familiar faces in timeless cinema with seldom pieces of Americana. I believe this books is the most unique approach to classic film ever written. And Im so glad it stayed away from gossip so prevalant in most Hollywood books. Each chapter stands alone, with generous use of photographs to help tell each story. This is the perfect book to take on your vacation, or as a gift for a family member or friend.

Manny Pacheco has enjoyed a successful 29-year career in radio, television. Still, there was something missing in his life. And so he wrote a book about a subject close to his heart: Hollywood history. It is one thing to say you will write a book, and something else to actually get it done. Pacheco spent years researching actors such as Claude Rains, Lionel Barrymore, Ward Bond, Van Heflin, and Basil Rathbone, to name a few. His fresh take was to show how their films offered a parallel to America’s history. He called it Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. The result: it won a key National Best Books 2009 Award, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has added it to its Margaret Herrick Library, telling Pacheco the book was culturally significant. At a time when most entertainers write tell-all books about themselves, it’s refreshing to see one write about history.
