For the past decade enthusiastic Ann Dovrak fan and collector, Christina Rice, has been researching the life of her favorite classic movie star. Rice has been chronicling her research on her website, anndvorak.com. Good news for us classic Hollywood fans, according to Rice on her website, she has accumulated enough research to complete a book and an upcoming Ann Dvorak biography is expected to be released later in 2013.
Rice's dedication to completing a biography on Dvorak had got me thinking of all the other classic Hollywood movie stars that still have never gotten the book treatment. Stars like Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn have, and will continue to have, many biographies written about them. Meanwhile, stars like Dennis Morgan, Glenda Farrell, Marilyn Maxwell, Frank McHugh, Jack Carson, and Frank Morgan are just a few stars from Hollywood's Golden Age that have never had an in-dephth biography written about them. I'm sure we could come up with a long list of stars that deserve the detailed biography treatment.
Is there a star from Hollywood's Golden Age that you would like to see some scholar or enthusiastic fan write a biography? Please share your suggestions in the comments section. I'm curious how many stars with no in-depth biography we can come up with.
