   One of the actors in my new book, Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, is getting plenty of publicity. Though he died over sixty years ago, C. Aubrey Smith has just received wonderful attention from The Picture Show Man website.

   The eloquent thespian was primarily cast as drawing-room gentlemen, and as British officers in fine dramas. Smith was almost 70 when he emerged as a reliable supporting player in talkies. And, he relied on his stage expertise to deliver screen performances in Tarzan the Ape Man, The Lives of a Bengal LancerThe Prisoner of Zenda, The Four Feathers, The White Cliffs of Dover, Rebecca, and others, over a two-decade career during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

   Throughout his life, Smith was a passionate lover of cricket. He even organized the British-Hollywood elite to form their own team in the United States. His personal and private life is well chronicled in the fine article from The Picture Show Man. Plus,  you will love the rarely-seen photos related to the actor.

   After reading his chapter in my paperback and the  comprehensive online story, you will see why C. Aubrey Smith should never be forgotten in the annals of cinema. Here’s a link of the web page to wet your film appetite:
