"Francis X. Bushman: A Biography and Filmography"

by Richard J. Maturi and Mary Buckingham Maturi (McFarland & Company, Inc., 1998, 254 pages)

Only biography of Francis X. Bushman and a good one, too. Enjoyable reading that is broken down into chronological periods of Bushman's life: "Early Years: From Sculptor's Model to Film Star," "Essany Studio Star," "The Quality Pictures - Metro Picture Years," "Keeping in the Public Eye," and more! The filmography alone is worth having this book. Not a simple listing of films, but all information about the makers and the stars as well as an excellent synopsis with reviewer's comments.
