Join Dr. Carlos as he explores how forgotten hollywood influences society. “Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is a fascinating look at the roots of modern-day cinema. I enjoyed learning more about some of my favorite actors, such as Basil Rathbone and Claude Rains, and discovering actors who had just been names to me. While I was familiar with Lionel Barrymore, his disability and the way he performed around it and led the way for other disabled performers was a revelation. Whether you are a classic movie buff or simply curious about this book, I think you’ll be pleased.”
