402 pages. 230 photographs. Afterword by Carla Laemmle.
"The photos are exceptional – candids, portrait (some excellent character shots), scene stills, and family photos. I absolutely loved the one depicting Ian Wolfe and Nancy Kelly from the NBC radio series The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1933-34). In many ways this is an important document, especially considering that Atkins’ subjects have all passed away. I cannot recall when Wolfe, Laemmle Jr., Napier, and David Manners have been interviewed in such depth and with such an attention to their personalities and their every-day lives."
