Forgotten Hollywood shares America's story through the eyes of actors from Hollywood's Golden Age

The fabric of our collective past has a shared cinematic and historical relationship. It's part of our unique education of what we call... The Humanities. Nothing grabs the mind like a finely crafted film. Memorable lines strike an instant impression, and classic imagery provides celluloid art for us to enjoy time and again. Manny Pacheco has studied motion pictures and the stars of yesteryear; and he presents a review of timeless films, which also uniquely capture seldom told accounts of Americana.
Hollywood's Golden Age character actors - Claude Rains, Walter Brennan, Van Heflin, Hattie McDaniel, and Basil Rathbone; and great films as Captain's CourageousStagecoach, and It's a Wonderful Life (among others) should never be forgotten. Neither should the impressive literary work of Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Paddy Chayefsky, or Eugene O'Neill. 
Bypassing the legendary stars from the Studio Era's Golden Age, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History focuses on the character actors and actresses that consistently delivered stellar performances, and it offers a bold fresh new take of our human journey. 
"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 pre-Revolutionary days to issues that we might tackle in the new millennium. Award-winning novels also play a role in our cherished past, for they manage to capture the imagination of a people, not with celluloid or video, but with rich textual characterizations from the power of the pen."

Professional Reviews

David C. Bojorquez, President, Vision4Media
First of all, I just want to compliment you on both your historical and Hollywood knowledge, as well as the immense amount of research you conducted to put the book together. It’s truly a monumental work.

It’s very well written, and it certainly reflects a man with a definitive passion for his subject matter… As you know adapting a book for the screen is often not easy… Because of the wealth inherent within your material, I’m in the process of wrapping my arms around it to derive the best possible angle – from which we can produce and also sell your work as a documentary feature and/or a television series.

Again, it’s really an amazing work… I’m highly impressed with your accomplishment…. As I continue to read you book, it’s an ongoing bit “Wow!” for me.

Lisa Osborne, Broadcaster
Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is a beautifully crafted book, filled with photos and stories of Hollywood’s Golden Age. You will be enchanted with the stories Pacheco shares as he takes you on a tour of forgotten Hollywood. Very nicely done, this is a perfect gift for the Hollywood fan in your life. In fact, I know that Hollywood buffs love this book, because a radio colleague borrowed my copy after seeing it on my desk, and I haven’t seen it since!
