Carl Rollyson is Professor of Journalism at Baruch College, The City University of New York. He reviews biographies regularly for The Wall Street Journal, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and other newspapers and periodicals.
Professor Rollyson was kind enough to write a fitting review in one of his columns, which appeared on the BiblioBuffet about my first work Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. Here’s a link to the review, dated 6/19/2011:
The one intangible impression made by Rollyson is his love for the work of actor Dana Andrews. I’d like to think I helped motivate the reviewer to finish an uncompleted manuscript on the life and times of this mostly underrated actor.
Hollywood Enigma: Dana Andrews is now available in bookstores, on Amazon, and is being well-promoted on Turner Classic Movies. According to the cable promo, the new book talks about the dubious relationship the star had with Hollywood studios; his fall from grace into alcoholism; and his redemptive later career. There is little doubt Andrews had lots of talent. His work in Laura, The Ox-Bow Incident, and The Best Years of Our Lives proves as much. What’s also clear, movie executives had plenty of trouble casting the actor.
I’m thrilled to promote my colleague’s new work. I intend to put this on my to-read list, since Dana Andrews is clearly part of Forgotten Hollywood lore… You should too!
