Innumerable Hollywood biographies and movie history books have been written in retrospect by film historians who relied partially if not extensively on the information provided by the industry's trade and fan magazines.

Long before the modern concept of social media outlets were imagined, these magazines offered the curious public a way to further satisfy their obsession for movies outside the darkened auditoriums of the cinema. These publications, though tightly controlled by the industry, also served as documentation-a window into the popular culture of the day-in feature articles, movie reviews, and product advertisements-and they still do today.

POP TWENTY PRESENTS in this volume a random sampling of articles from the 1930s selected by the interest of the editor for no particular reason. Hollywood celebrities discussed within the pages of this book include Clara Bow, Claudette Colbert, Frances Dee, Cecil B. DeMille, Walt Disney, Margaret Dumont, W. C. Fields, Kay Francis, Charlotte Henry, Boris Karloff, Carole Lombard, Myrna Loy, Bela Lugosi, The Marx Brothers, Joel McCrea, George O'Brien, William Powell, Warren William, and many others featured in the extensive collection of photographs.

We hope you will find them as entertaining and informative as we did, along with the generously added illustrative material culled from our collection and the collections of several other valued movie enthusiasts.
