Leading Couples: Unforgettable Screen Romances of the Studio Era (Turner Classic Movies)

by TurnerClassicMovies (Author)

Synopsis

William Powell and Myrna Loy. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Bogart and Bacall. Tracy and Hepburn. These on-screen (and sometimes off-screen) couples made audiences swoon and defined romantic chemistry screen and the art of falling in love. From Turner Classic Movies, Leading Couples features nearly 40 of the most unforgettable screen pairings of the studio era, including actors and actresses with many-film courtships and those like Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind who made their indelible mark in a single, fantastic film. Engaging and thoroughly researched, each profile includes his and her trivia, a film overview, behind-the- scenes facts, and memorable quotes, illustrated by stunning stills, posters, and rare publicity shots. It is produced with a bright, fresh, and gifty approach that we've seen contribute to the success of the rest of the TCM line, breaking it out of the expected black and white classic film mold.
