Colleen Moore : A Biography of the Silent Film Star Paperback / softback


Colleen Moore (1899-1988) was one of the most popular and beloved stars of the American silent screen.

Remembered primarily as a comedienne in such films as Ella Cinders (1926) and Orchids and Ermine (1927), Moore's career was also filled with dramatic roles which often reflected greater societal trends.

A trailblazing performer, her legacy was overshadowed by the female stars that followed her, notably Louise Brooks and Clara Bow.

An in-depth examination of Moore's early life and film career, the book focuses on the ways in which her family and the times in which she lived influenced the roles she chose.

Included are forewords written by film historian Joseph Yranski, a friend of the actress, and by Moore's stepdaughter, Judith Hargrave Coleman.
