I knew 100 Covers would do a great job but was still on edge until yesterday when they sent me this image. I’m delighted, and that energy prompted me to shorten a too-long introduction to They Make Movies and make it read like this:
This fast-moving collection blends fiction with history to illuminate the stimulating but often troubled lives and careers of noted actors, actresses, and directors.
Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Chadwick Boseman, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Halle Berry, Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood, and Spike Lee are among the stars who face challenges real and imaginary.
Lesser known but talented performers Louise Brooks, Anna May Wong, and Jeanne Eagels also enhance They Make Movies.
(We’re planning to launch this book in June 2021)
