Forgotten Hollywood, Forgotten History
"Before it (the rich presentation of American history) becomes extinct, I decided to write a book that ties Hollywood's past reverence of American history to how the U.S. actually evolved, linking events that occurred during our Revolutionary days to issues that we might tackle in the new millennium."

-----

"The early forties was a turbulent time for the U.S. The country was committed to neutrality that would keep our troops out of another World War. Yet, President Franklin Roosevelt felt compelled to help Europe and, notably, England from the Nazi threat. It was in this atmosphere that Casablanca was written."

-----

"No one in Hollywood's studio era personified life in the urban jungle better than Willliam Bendix. He was the everyman who served, fought, worked and lived in the trenches of life. More often than not, he is still appreciated for his memorable roles. He could be silly, dumb, amiable, heroic or menacing…and Bendix lived the Life of Riley for his efforts. When needed, he could also pack an award-worthy performance into the mix."

-----

"Walter Brennan is the most honored American male actor in history, winning three of the first five Supporting Actor awards. He also embodies any individual that may have been born around and west of the Mississippi. Looking far older than his years, Brennan could be called upon to play roles that were based in fact or fiction."

Forgotten Hollywood, Forgotten History
"This is one of the books you don't want to read in a rush. Allow yourself the luxury of a chapter at a time. Embrace the storytelling method that merges fact and fiction and delivers some fascinating insights into some of cinema's favorite character actors."
-Gary Lycan, Radio Columnist, Orange Country Register
-----

"We love movies and we love movie stars. We remember lines and images long after the house lights come up. Manny Pacheco has been a student of the movies and he knows Hollywood.

However, he does not look at the big stars; he concentrates on the character actors and actresses such as Claude Rains, Lionel Barrymore, Gloria Grahame and many others who many of us know little about but who we have seen over and over again. And he includes photographs and stills from the movies. This is a different look at Hollywood than we usually get and it is fascinating."
-Amos Lassen, Little Rock AK

-----

"Beautifully illustrated and written, Manny Pacheco's book, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, takes me as a reader on a journey through history with memorable actors and actresses. I savored each chapter, relishing the facts and memories. Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is a must read for anyone who has ever watched a movie."
-Jacquie J. Ream, writer, Seattle WA
