KIRKUS REVIEW

Remember Musselman's amusing Wheels in his Head (1945)? Well, the same gives good entertainment value to this combination of moving picture history biography"" of Manjou.....First generation American, of a French father, his film career as an extra with Vitagraph in Brooklyn. Prior to that boyhood, he had to Culver and he had he get into of Woman of Pari, making the transition to in a dramatic Front Page, on to his current role in The Hucksters. A bagful of chatty, anecdotes of Mable Norman, Fatty Arbuckle, Charlie Chaplain, Theda Bara, Val Pela Negri, Doug Fairbanks- stars of yesterday- but with less of stars today. De- and refinement of movie techniques, the Hays Office, etc. paralleling Manjou's career, make for interesting reading for movie fans. Many cuts in style and arrangement above the usual Hollywood story. Rentals to fans. Backed by publishers with substantial advertising, promotion, autographing parties, radio tie-ups, publicity programs.
