A few of Montana’s actors such as Gary Cooper and Myrna Loy found success during the Golden Age of Hollywood. For more than a century, Montana has supplied a rich variety of film and musical entertainment and personality—from daredevils to dancers, mostly unknown, until now.

Brian D’Ambrosio’s new book, Montana Entertainers, Famous and Almost Forgotten, gives us a glimpse of many unsung heroes and heroines of the entertainment world, including a few African American and Native American actors such as Chief Many Treaties and Taylor Gordon.
