Manny Pacheco’s Forgotten Hollywood: Leading Men of 30s & 40s

Was the atmosphere for Leading Male Actors unique between the 2 wold wars –in the 1930’s and 40’s? Was there ever a richer period for ‘Leading Men’? As Manny Pacheco recounts some of the names considered among ‘favorites’ it becomes obvious how difficult it would be to choose (only) a top 10! AND how many men of the era went on to even bigger fame in the 50’s and 60s! Manny is also urged to find some more obscure names, perhaps lost to history or who’s star didn’t burn as long: Remember John Garfield? You’ll enjoy the list and the memories…and maybe you can help extend the list with your favorite ‘leading men!”
