For fans of musicals, singing, Hollywood history, and the lives of stars, no other work equals this new three-volume reference to the on- and off-camera careers of more than 100 performers who made major contributions to the American screen musical. From June Allyson to Mae West, Hollwood Songsters provides a detailed narrative-ranging from 2,000 to 5000 words each-of the lives and careers of stars forever etched in our memories. Each description is informative, engaging, and fun, yet the scrupulous attention to detail and accuracy ensures that even the most knowledgeable scholar will learn something new. Each entry includes a filmography, discography (of both albums and CDs), Broadway appearances, radio work, television appearances and series,and a full-page photo of the subject. A complete index of names of performers, films, and songs rounds out the work. This is the ideal reference work for everyone one from the mildly curious to the hard-core fan.

"Entries are uniformly well written, readable, and informative. Considering the scope and range of this title, all public and academic libraries should make it a high-priority purchase." -"Library Journal "The quality of scholarship is high, and nothing comparable currently exists." -M.C. Duhig, "Choice, May 2003 ..."The chapters are sharp, thankfully to the point, breezy (six pages average each), fact loaded reads. Some chapters from the first edition are expanded, many updated. ...this is a first rate, superior musical set." -Laura Wagner, "Classic Images "Both of these authors have had a great deal of experience in this field and with their skill they present the reader with a wealth of knowledge." -Maggie Ramirez "Rainbo Electronic Reviews, April 2003
