Classic Horror Actress Carla Laemmle publishes memior...
Carla Laemmle, the 16 year old prima ballerina in The Phantom of the Opera (1925), and the first woman who speaks in Dracula (1931), has recently been the subject of two books.
The first, Among the Rugged Peaks: An Intimate Biography of Carla Laemmle, was written by Rick Atkins.
The second, Growing Up With Monsters: My Times at Universal Studios in Rhymes, written by the 99 year old actress herself, details her experience working on two of the most iconic horror films of all time. In rhyme. With an introduction by Ray Bradbury and illustrations by MAD magazine's Jack Davis and Hermann Mejia.
