   Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has done it again! The American Film Institute is the latest iconic place to accept the paperback in their Louis B. Mayer Library. They now join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Writers Guild Foundation, and The Paley Center for Media as prestigious locations where you can find my award-winning paperback.

   According to their website:

Louis B. Mayer Library

Founded in 1969, the Louis B. Mayer Library is designed and devoted to serve the research needs of the staff of the American Film Institute, and the faculty and students of the AFI’s Center for Advanced Film and Television Studies. The library is also available on a non-circulating basis to visiting scholars, researchers, and advanced graduate students, as well as members of the entertainment industry.

The library holds books and periodicals and other special collections covering various aspects of cinema and television. You can find motion picture scripts, oral history transcripts, and noted collections from directors such as Martin Scorsese, Fritz Lang, and Sergei M. Eisenstein. 

AFI is a national institute providing leadership in screen education, and the recognition and celebration of excellence in the art of film, television and digital media.


   Louis B. Mayer was the greatest film producer of the studio era, and chief at MGM. He created the “star-system” during Hollywood’s Golden Age. His stable of actors included Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Spencer Tracy, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Wallace Beery, Joan Crawford, Mickey Rooney, Jean Harlow, and “more stars than there are in the heavens.”

   Among the actors featured in Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, Lionel Barrymore, Donald Crisp, and Lassie made great films while at Metro Goldwyn Mayer. It’s a complete honor to learn my paperback has found a new home at The American Film Insititute.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
