Although their feature films and short subjects are almost completely forgotten today, the Dionne Quintuplets (Yvonne, Annette, Emilie, Cecile and Marie) were the most popular team of the 1930s and the highest paid movie stars of the era.
Before they could even walk or talk, the Canadian babies were starring in blockbuster hits from Twentieth Century-Fox, dominating movie magazine covers, and surpassing Shirley Temple at the box office.
Exhaustively researched and illustrated with rare photos and vintage advertisements, The Films Of The Dionne Quintuplets tells the compelling, untold story of the five sisters' little-known movie career. This book will fascinate Dionne Quintuplet collectors, Golden Age movie buffs and Depression-era scholars as a document of the time when five tiny miracle babies provided much-needed escapism to millions of moviegoers.
Author Paul Talbot tackles the famous five with emphasis on their interesting film career. Packed with photos and priceless information, every film fan will marvel at their story.
