Synopsis :

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.

From Library Journal:

This greatly updated and expanded second edition (the first came out in 1991) focuses on 112 performers who have been successful as both singers and film stars of American movies. Many of the names are familiar-e.g., Fred Astaire and Nelson Eddy-but Parish and Pitts, the authors of several books on the entertainment industry, have also included lesser-known and/or forgotten personalities, such as the Dinning Sisters. A real surprise is the number of "singing cowboys" included, e.g., Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, and "Bronze Buckaroo" Herb Jeffries. Unfortunately, some singing actors simply do not make the cut, including Robert Preston and John Travolta, and it's sometimes unclear why one is "in" and another "out." But the final product is still well worth the price. Each entry includes a detailed biography ranging from 2000 to 5000 words; a filmography (including title, studio, and release date); a discography of both albums and CDs; Broadway, radio, and television appearances; and a full-page photo. The final volume comprises a complete index of performers, films, and song titles. 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 to complement Ken Bloom's Hollywood Song and Colin Larkin's The Virgin Encyclopedia of Stage and Film Musicals.
