Screen Sirens Scream! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Screen Sirens Scream! free pdf This book features twenty heroines who portrayed imperiled women in science fiction, horror, film noir and mystery movies from the 1930s to the 1960s. Some - like Sandy Descher, who confronted the giant ants of "Them!" - were only girls when they faced their screen perils. Others - such as Mary Murphy, who played opposite Marlon Brando in "The Wild One" - were leading ladies in other film genres. Yet others - such as June Wilkinson, considered by many as "Playboy"'s greatest model - came from outside the acting world. In this book, each interview is preceded by an introduction. Besides the three above, the interviewees are Ramsay Ames, Claudia Barrett, Jean Byron, Linda Christian, Faith Domergue, Amanda Duff, Evangelina Elizondo, Margaret Field, Mimi Gibson, Marilyn Harris, Kitty de Hoyos, Donna Martel, Joyce Meadows, Noreen Nash, Cynthia Patrick, Paula Raymond and Joan Taylor. Among the films they starred in are "The Mummy's Ghost", "Robot Monster", "Tarzan and the Mermaids", "This Island Earth", "It Came from Beneath the Sea", "Where Danger Lives", "The Man from Planet X", "The Monster That Challenged the World", "Frankenstein", "The Brain from Planet Arous", "Phantom from Space", "The Mole People", "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" and "Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers". Some interviews were previously published in a different form in fan magazines.
