JOHN CARRADINE THE FILMS BY TOM WEAVER AND GREGORY MANK, FIRST EDITION $20.
John Carradine played a wildly varied series of characters - those he constructed for himself as well as those he played on stage and in film. And what characters they were, ranging in real life from "banana messenger" to flamboyant Shakespearean actor to loutish drunk, and onscreen from Casy in The Grapes of Wrath (1940) to a blood-drinking poetry lover in Vampire Hookers (1979).
No book has ever captured Carradine's entire film career until now. This complete filmography, from his first appearance (Tol'able David, 1930) to his last (Buried Alive, 1990), is packed with detail and lavishly illustrated - the essential Carradine reference for every film historian and fan.
Lon Chaney, Jr. : Horror Film Star, 1906-1973. 1991, 236 PAGES. $20

While rightly focused on the career of the underrated actor, this study also explores his life and times.
