Actresses like Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Jean Harlow, Ava Gardner, and Katharine Hepburn who starred in movies back when they were called "talkies" have all captivated the public. Film buffs interested in learning more about these Hollywood actresses can do more than just watch the films in which they starred: They can also learn about who they were outside of their characters by reading articles in magazine archives.
Finding Magazines with Articles about Early Hollywood Actresses
When these Hollywood actresses shot to fame, magazine articles often focused on their early lives, before they entered the public eye. In addition to offering biographies of Hollywood actresses and stars, these articles also discussed their performances and critiqued their films.

Occasionally, some fans may come across old issues of periodicals like Film Spectator and Photoplay Magazine at garage or estate sales, but often they are at a loss for primary sources.
