There is a new book out on Ford Sterling, the one time Keystone Kop and comedic actor who appeared in two Louise Brooks films, The American Venus and The Show-Off (both 1926). Wendy Warwick White's Ford Sterling: The Life and Films is the first ever book on this talented and fascinating personality. "The main focus of the work is Sterling's career, from 1911 to 1937, which is unfortunately largely forgotten today. With an emphasis on correcting inaccuracies and restoring Sterling's legacy, this volume examines his on-screen work, his production ventures, his reputation as a world renowned photographer and his final debilitating illness. A detailed filmography provides all known production, cast and crew information as well as a synopsis for each film when available."
