Classic American Silent Screen Stars & Early Hollywood Celebrities

Henry B. Goode was also known for his pen and inks of many of the Hollywood celebrities of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, such as Wallace Berry, Clara Bow, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and many other Hollywood stars. He worked for and was friends with Tom Mix, accompanying Mr. Mix’s silent screen movies with his cello.

Clara Bow – 1920s “The ‘It’ Girl” – – born “. . . into the tenements of Brooklyn . . . to a ‘weedy, creepy, hypersexed loser of a father and a mentally ill, manipulative and antimaternal mother'” . . . (David Stenn, Bow’s biographer).  Bow, who was loaded with “health and vigor . . . captured the ‘ethos of an era, the 1920s.'”

Goode’s youngest son, Bud, was Art Linkletter’s publicist in the 50s
