“I highly recommend it. Theater families don’t get any more interesting, and it’s a true tale well told.”
 — Robert Osborne, The Hollywood Reporter

“A diligent researcher and a perceptive, graceful writer”
 — Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times

“A splendid bio” — Playbill

“Bliss for buffs” — Toronto Globe & Mail

“The famous Bennett family has long been the most neglected of acting dynasties, but Brian Kellow has successfully remedied that problem. He covers father (Richard), famous daughters (Joan and Constance) and forgotten daughter (Barbara) with equal balance and insight. He is particularly astute on the remarkable career of Joan, several of whose movies have become staples in academic instruction. This is a valuable book about important players in film and theatre history.”
 — Jeanine Basinger, author of American Cinema: One Hundred Years of Filmmaking and Silent Stars

“A page‐turning saga of a fascinating family of American actors. From the stock theatres of the nineteenth century to the movie studios of Hollywood to network television, Kellow captures the drama and comedy of the Bennetts both on and off the stage.”
–Helen Sheehy, author of Eleanora Duse: A Biography
