Welcome to ObscureHollywood.net!

We feature reviews, research and commentary about little-known and forgotten Hollywood films and artists of the Silent and early Sound eras.

We currently feature a biography and career overview of legendary film director King Vidor, as well as insight into seven of his obscure films, including Bardelys the Magnificent (1926) and Billy the Kid (1928), as well as his collaborations with Marion Davies: The Patsy (1928), Show People (1928), and Not So Dumb (1930).

Read a feature article on Lee Tracy, an exciting, but obscure, actor, and a new article on Doctor X (1932), one of his oddest movies.

Visit our newest addition, an ongoing Film Journal where we will discuss all of the films we watch each month.

Visit our ever expanding Index of Players to learn about some of the once-popular, now-forgotten, stars, character actors, and directors of the 1920s and 1930s.

We hope ObscureHollywood.net will become a resource for you to discover and enjoy some of these forgotten faces and films, just as audiences of the past did... and as we do today.
