Description
 
Film historian Leonard Maltin has defined the character actors who appeared in films of the 30s and 40s as "Hollywoods Real Stars." Roy William Neill, who directed nearly all of the Sherlock Holmes mystery-adventures of the 1940s that starred Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, had, as was the case with directors John Ford and Preston Sturges, a repertory company of character actors and actresses whom he liked to use. This book is a tribute to those 68 men and women whose names appeared in small print below the stars, and who graced hundreds of films with their diversified performances. More often than not these films, be they star-studded spectacles or poverty row quickies, would be that much the better for their presence.
