The passage of time inevitably causes outstanding achievements and important names to be obscured or lost. However, this does not reduce their inherent value.

Over the course of many decades, the author has derived countless hours of entertainment and education through the four major American entertainment media: radio, theater, movies, and television. He feels indebted to the exceptionally talented performers of the twentieth century who have now passed into history. Recently, the author has attempted to locate a book describing all four of the entertainment media and its great performers, but none is to be found. Many books are available about only one or two media.

The author hopes that this book will spark the reader's interest in the great stars of the past and propagate this forward, particularly to the younger generation. All the data in this book is publicly available piecemeal, but this book consolidates and makes it more pleasurable and easier for the reader to acquire the fun and sometimes trivial information.
