Laird Cregar Receives Starred Review in Booklist

Laird CregarLaird Cregar: A Hollywood Tragedy
Gregory William Mank

“Based on decades of research, relying mainly on primary sources (as much as possible, given that his subject died more than 70 years ago) and archival material, the author brings Cregar back to vivid life in this culmination of an “almost lifelong” fascination with the actor… Many showbiz biographies reduce the lives of stars to formula; this one gives rich life to an unknown Hollywood story.”—Booklist (starred review)
