A Life of Barbara Stanwyck

Frank Capra called her, "The greatest emotional actress the screen has yet known." Yet she was one of its most natural, timeless, and underrated stars. Now Victoria Wilson, gives us the most complete portrait we have yet had, or will have, of this magnificent actresses, seen as the quintessential Brooklyn girl whose family was in fact of old New England stock…her years in New York as dancer and Broadway star…her fraught marriage to Frank Fay, Broadway genius, who influenced a generation of actors and comedians (among them, Jack Benny and Stanwyck herself)…the adoption of a son, embattled from the outset; her partnership with the "unfunny" Marx brother, Zeppo, together creating one of the finest horse breeding farms in the west; her fairytale romance and marriage to the younger Robert Taylor, America's most sought-after male star…Here is the shaping of her career working with many of Hollywood's most important directors: among them, Capra, King Vidor, Cecil B. Demille, Preston Sturges, all set against the times-the Depression, the rise of the unions, the coming of World War II and a fast-evolving coming-of-age motion picture industry. At the heart of the book, Stanwyck herself-her strengths, her fears, her desires-how she made use of the darkness in her soul, keeping it at bay in her private life, transforming herself from shunned outsider into one of Hollywood's-and America's-most revered screen actresses. Written with full access to Stanwyck's family, friends, colleagues, and never-before-seen letters, journals and photographs.

Elizabeth Taylor

“Shimmering in blue sequins and periwinkle eye shadow, Elizabeth Taylor strode onto the stage of the Mark Hellinger Theater to present the 1981 Antoinette Perry Award for Broadway’s best musical…As she started to speak, the entire audience suddenly rose to give her a standing ovation. Wildly cheering, the crowd paid homage to the woman whose beauty had for so long enchanted the America. Now ripe and opulent at forty-nine, she no longer looked like the little girl who had ridden to glory in National Velvet; but the audience did not care, She could still bestow a touch of magic.”—from the preface This biography of Elizabeth Taylor tells her story as no other can. Drawing on extensive reporting and interviews, Kitty Kelley’s classic portrait follows the rise, fall, and rebirth of the woman who was perhaps Hollywood’s brightest star. Now with a new Afterword by the author, this is the definitive record of Elizabeth Taylor’s fascinating life.

Role Playing Game Studies

This handbook collects, for the first time, the state of research on role-playing games (RPGs) across disciplines, cultures, and media in a single, accessible volume. Collaboratively authored by more than 50 key scholars, it traces the history of RPGs, from wargaming precursors to tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons to the rise of live action role-play and contemporary computer RPG and massively multiplayer online RPG franchises, like Fallout and World of Warcraft. Individual chapters survey the perspectives, concepts, and findings on RPGs from key disciplines, like performance studies, sociology, psychology, education, economics, game design, literary studies, and more. Other chapters integrate insights from RPG studies around broadly significant topics, like transmedia worldbuilding, immersion, transgressive play, or player–character relations. Each chapter includes definitions of key terms and recommended readings to help fans, students, and scholars new to RPG studies find their way into this new interdisciplinary field.

The Routledge Companion to the Contemporary Musical

The Routledge Companion to the Contemporary Musical is dedicated to the musical’s evolving relationship to American culture in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. In the past decade-and-a-half, international scholars from an ever-widening number of disciplines and specializations have been actively contributing to the interdisciplinary field of musical theater studies. Musicals have served not only to mirror the sociopolitical, economic, and cultural tenor of the times, but have helped shape and influence it, in America and across the globe: a genre that may seem, at first glance, light-hearted and escapist serves also as a bold commentary on society. Forty-four essays examine the contemporary musical as an ever-shifting product of an ever-changing culture. This volume sheds new light on the American musical as a thriving, contemporary performing arts genre, one that could have died out in the post-Tin Pan Alley era but instead has managed to remain culturally viable and influential, in part by newly embracing a series of complex contradictions. At present, the American musical is a live, localized, old-fashioned genre that has simultaneously developed into an increasingly globalized, tech-savvy, intensely mediated mass entertainment form. Similarly, as it has become increasingly international in its scope and appeal, the stage musical has also become more firmly rooted to Broadway—the idea, if not the place—and thus branded as a quintessentially American entertainment.

Chester Morris

Chester Morris

 The prodigious but humble scion of a New York theatrical family, Chester Morris acted on Broadway as a teenager and earned an Academy Award nomination for his first role in a Hollywood "talkie," Alibi (1929). He became leading man to filmdom's top female stars and starred in the popular series of "Boston Blackie" mysteries before creating substantial characters in the theater and the burgeoning medium of television. This first book about Morris provides a detailed account of his life and career on stage, film, radio and television, and as a celebrated magician. It also constructs a fascinating record of his previously undocumented labor activism during the early years of the Screen Actors Guild and his tireless efforts to aid U.S. troops on the home front during World War II.

Where the rhythm section of piano, bass, and drums traditionally supported and inspired the featured player within the context of chorus form and tempo, Mingus's rhythm unit took startling liberties with the form itself.

Considering Genius

Stanley Crouch-MacArthur "Genius" Award recipient, co-founder of Jazz at Lincoln Center, National Book Award nominee, and perennial bull in the china shop of black intelligentsia-has been writing about jazz and jazz artists for more than thirty years. His reputation for controversy is exceeded only by a universal respect for his intellect and passion. As Gary Giddons notes: "Stanley may be the only jazz writer out there with the kind of rhinoceros hide necessary to provoke and outrage and then withstand the fulminations that come back." In Considering Genius, Crouch collects some of his best loved, most influential, and most controversial pieces (published in Jazz Times, The New Yorker, the Village Voice, and elsewhere), together with two new essays. The pieces range from the introspective "Jazz Criticism and Its Effect on the Art Form" to a rollicking debate with Amiri Baraka, to vivid, intimate portraits of the legendary performers Crouch has known.

From Movie City to Music City  USA

If you're interested in working in movies or making music and you were not privileged to be born the son or daughter of an already established named actor, writer, or musician that can open the door for you, then this book is your guide. Should you decide to take that leap from the normal to what everyone else considers the abnormal career choice the advice in this book can not only save you months and years of getting that first background artist job, but can also save you hundreds and thousands of dollars that you do not need to spend in pursuit of the entertainment industry as a career. Consider this book a basic training manual, a no punches pulled guide to the obstacles that you are guaranteed to face while pursuing entertainment as the industry of your choice. The main focus of this book is to educate those that wish to pursue show business regardless of one's area of interest within the performing arts, whether one wants to be an actor, or writer, producer or director, songwriter or recording artist. They all have one ugly thing in common and that is the con-artist. They will promise you the world just to empty the contents of your wallet and bank account. They will prey upon your dreams so that their gain is your nightmare. Let this book be your shield for those that will use unscrupulous and unethical tactics against you. While pursuing the entertainment industry as a career, you will also be confronted with more obstacles, walls, and closed doors, that will be just as disappointing as getting ripped off. One thing you will find is that if you can't handle rejection and do not have thick skin then the entertainment industry definitely isn't for you. However if you can keepgetting back on that horse no matter how many times it throws you then this book will help you keep dusting yourself off and staying in the saddle. Consider me as your wagon master guiding you through dangerous territory, with all of its unpleasantness and uncertainties, although I can't guarantee the success of your journey through show business, as can no one, I can at least point you in the right direction so you won't be lured off the beaten path by the bandits that hide and wait for you. There will be those that will tell you that you will not succeed, but in my opinion if your only goal is to work in movies and you only work as a movie extra then you have succeeded, as success itself has many levels and one has to start somewhere. Trust me some of today's big names were also once told, "go home you'll never make it" and now they have a net worth of over $600,000,000.00. You may never become the $600,000,000.00 man or woman but no matter, follow your heart do what you love and love what you do.
