9780786449699: Colleen Moore: A Biography of the Silent Film Star

Colleen Moore (1899-1988) was one of the most popular and beloved stars of the American silent screen. Remembered primarily as a comedienne in such films as Ella Cinders (1926) and Orchids and Ermine (1927), Moore's career was also filled with dramatic roles that often reflected societal trends. A trailblazing performer, her legacy was somewhat overshadowed by the female stars that followed her, notably Louise Brooks and Clara Bow. An in-depth examination of Moore's early life and film career, the book reveals the ways in which her family and the times in which she lived influenced the roles she chose. Included are forewords written by film historian Joseph Yranski, a friend of the actress, and by Moore's stepdaughter, Judith Hargrave Coleman.

From the Author:

The book is due to go to the presses at the end of February, so it will be available before too long. It'll be worth the wait: buy soon, buy often!
     This book focuses on Colleen's early life, upbringing, and her early silent career prior to when she became famous as a flapper and comedienne. It is generally forgotten that the majority of her film work was dramatic in nature, and that her performances in her dramas were very accomplished. Her comedies are great but the film enthusiast should not deprive themselves of any opportunity to view her dramas.
     As I studied her career, it occurred to me her roles often mirrored the roles available to women at the time, both in films and in the greater society. And so, to a degree, a study of her film career is a study of the roles of women. If the iconic figure of the flapper (the roles she is most often associated with) had not passed into obsolescence with the coming of the Great Depression, she would be better recalled today.
     This book looks at her career in the context of her times and relies not only on the newspaper reports that followed her career as it was happening, but also relies on archival materials from her various studios. It follows, in chronological order, her various productions, studies how busy she was at any given time, and examines how she made changes to her public persona to better fit into roles that were rapidly becoming more modern. While she implied in her autobiography "Silent Star" that she was essentially an innocent who fell into many of her roles by luck and pluck, or was guided by her husband, she was in fact a very savvy actress and businesswoman who learned how to use the public perception of her to her advantage.
     Anyone who has read "Silent Star" knows she was full of stories and recollections. However, if you came away from the book wanting to know more and wanting to better understand her role in motion picture history, my biography is for you. She is an actress who should be better known today than she is.
