by Edward Lorusso -- NEW

Edward Lorusso In THE SILENT FILMS OF MARION DAVIES, lovingly has compiled a wonderfully intelligent chronology of each of Marion Davies30 silent motion pictures, complete with production notes, story synopsis, cast and crew listings, minimal reviews, and glorious stills and black & white and color advertising promotion from each film.Not a comprehensive biography by any stretch, THE SILENT FILMS OF MARION DAVIES is a thorough accounting of Davies's silent film cannon. There is not a great deal of production history, in depth shooting schedule, or contemporary Hollywood history given in the narrative. But that is not the point of Lorusso's work.
