Bloopers (Coming Soon)

The word 'Forgotten' has been used in this blog to represent the thousands of actors who rarely get recognised for their work beyond their peers. Without websites and blogs like this one they could easily be forgotten altogether. As new generations discover films, how many will venture into the obscure world of second features and independent productions to discover the layers of talent behind the stars of the day? When you last watched a classic film, did you notice the maid, the train conductor, the woman selling flowers, the elevator operator, or any of the passers-by in the background? Or were your eyes transfixed on the main actors, as they are supposed to be. Sometimes watching a film several times will give you the full appreciation of what it takes to create an atmosphere in a scene. I hope when you look at this blog you will go and watch the films for yourself, maybe several times and look beyond the foreground action to the bit-part actors, each one with a life, a career and a story of their own. More famous actors are included in this blog for the sake of completion and to help you research the less famous ones.

Qualifying actors and actresses for this blog are those who have appeared on screen before 1970, whether they have been forgotten or not.
