    Lyle Talbot

    Nice to see TCM running movies featuring actor Lyle Talbot (1902-1996), one of the hardest working and busiest actors on stage, screen and TV for over 60 years. A founder of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), he was a contract player at Warner Bros. in the pre-Code 1930s era. Romanced everyone from Ginger Rodgers to Barbara Stanwyck, Carole Lombard to Mae West. Appeared in over 150 films. Talbot was also there at the birth of TV, appearing in countless shows, including his longterm role as neighbor Joe Randolph on "Ozzie and Harriet." Now there's a new biography of Talbot's amazing life, loves and lore. It's called, "The Entertainer: Movies, Magic and My Father's Twentieth Century" by his daughter, Margaret Talbot, who is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. Highly recommended to all TCM regulars.

    Lyle Talbot biography

    For fans of Hollywood's Golden Age, especially fans of Pre-Code films, I recommend the new biography of Warner Bros. actor Lyle Talbot ("Three on a Match," "20,000 Years at Sing Sing," "Ladies They Talk About" and many, many more). It's called, "The Entertainer: Movies, Magic and My Father's Twentieth Century" by his daughter, Margaret Talbot, who is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. It's packed with insider stories about Talbot's many loves and countless film, TV and stage performances and offers new insights into the nature of show biz from the Roaring '20s through the 1980s. Talbot was a consummate pro. A symbol of the working actor. Always busy. Also, a founding member of the Screen Actors Guild.

    Pre-Code Films

    For all fans of Pre-Code films, I recommend the new biography of Warner Bros. actor Lyle Talbot ("Three on a Match," "20,000 Years at Sing Sing," "Ladies They Talk About" and many, many more). It's called, "The Entertainer: Movies, Magic and My Father's Twentieth Century" (Riverhead Books) by his daughter, Margaret Talbot, who is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. It's packed with insider stories and fresh insights about the Pre-Code era.
