About the Book

Anita Page (1910–2008) first captured moviegoers’ attention near the end of the silent film era in such classics as While the City Sleeps (1928) with Lon Chaney, The Flying Fleet (1929) with Ramón Novarro, and her own favorite film, Our Dancing Daughters (1928) with Joan Crawford. Throughout her relatively short career, Page enjoyed popular and critical acclaim and appeared in the first full-sound movie to win Best Picture, The Broadway Melody (1929).

With foreword by her close friend, actor Randal Malone, this reference work is the first to fully detail Page’s remarkable career, including a biography and a complete listing of all her films, along with her one stage appearance and her returns to the limelight in later years. Entries provides complete production information, reviews and behind-the-scenes commentary. Dozens of photos and revealing anecdotes complete a portrait of a fascinating yet underappreciated performer.
