Chester Morris : His Life and Career
by Scott Allen Nollen and Yuyun Yuningsih Nollen




Overview -
 The prodigious but humble scion of a New York theatrical family, Chester Morris acted on Broadway as a teenager and earned an Academy Award nomination for his first role in a Hollywood talkie, Alibi (1929). He became leading man to filmdom's top female stars and starred in the popular series of Boston Blackie mysteries before creating substantial characters in the theater and the burgeoning medium of television. This first book about Morris provides a detailed account of his life and career on stage, film, radio and television, and as a celebrated magician. It also constructs a fascinating record of his previously undocumented labor activism during the early years of the Screen Actors Guild and his tireless efforts to aid U.S. troops on the home front during World War II.
