Garbo talked, Gilbert self-destructed and Chaplin refused--thats about all many people know about silent film actors who faced the transition into talking pictures. Yes, Greta Garbos talkie debut was successful, John Gilberts was disastrous, and Charlie Chaplin did not deign to make one for over a decade. But there were many others--both stars and lesser lights--who also made the leap for at least one talking film. From Renee Adoree to Loretta Young, over 500 actors and actresses who made at least three silent films and had some starring or supporting roles in sound films are included in this reference work. For each performer, the place of birth, vital dates, nicknames if any, real name if different from stage name, and a source for filmographic data are included. This information is followed by capsule accounts of the performers silent and sound careers, along with contemporary reviews of selected talkies in which they appeared.
