    An engaging book on the life of Harry Langdon (1884-1944) that is well researched and puts to rest the character assassination claims that Frank Capra made in the aftermath of Harry firing him in the late 20's.

The story starts at childhood in the late 1800's, carries on to the Vaudeville years at the turn of the century,details Harry Langdon the silent film superstar in the mid 20's, and finally covers the later years in "talkies". In between the films you learn about Harry's complicated love life and legal tribulations. 600+ pages flew by in just a few days. Highly, highly recommended.
