Broadway Actors in Films, 1894-2015

Many important Broadway stars appeared in the cinema from its very earliest days. Many were 19th century stage idols who reprised their most famous roles as early as 1894, and who might have no other depiction of their work extant. One was born as early as 1829; another was appearing in the play at which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. One took her stage name from her native state. There are many other fascinating stories. Some contemporary stars began their careers on Broadway as well; some are still appearing in the cinema today. This book discusses the careers of 300 performers in all theater and screen genres from tragedy to farce to musical comedy-and from one-reelers to epics. A few made only a single film, others hundreds. They all came from the Great White Way and eventually brought their talents to the screen. Each entry includes highlights of the performer's career and a selected stageography and filmography.
