Eve Golden is the author of six theater and film biographies; her articles on film history have also been collected into two anthologies.
She was copy chief at More magazine for seven years and wrote the humor column “The Bottom Shelf” in Movieline in the 1990s.
She currently works in New York as a photo archivist, obituary writer and freelance editor. A stately dowager, Golden can wield a lorgnette with great panache. She can be stalked or flattered on Facebook, and reached at email@example.com.
The handsome, mercurial matinee idol who inspired the 2010 film The Artist, John Gilbert was MGM's top male star till talkies destroyed his career. The question ever since has been, why? His voice, a feud with Mayer, changing tastes, or his own hubris? A sympatheic but honest portrait of the man who was loved by Garbo, Dietrich, Leatrice Joy, Virginia Bruce, Ina Claire, Lupe Velez, Laurette Taylor, Barbara La Marr and many others.

"One of the best authors on film today."
--Laura Wagner, Classic Images
"Golden has the personality of a no-nonsense dame from the 1930s."
--Scott Eyman, The Palm Beach Post
"Reading any new work by Eve Golden is the literary equivalent of an eager wide-eyed kid on Christmas...you're not only going to be learning about a person and/or era in cinema, but you're going to have a hell of a lot of fun in the process."
