Archived: the players' guide
Before Google, one of the most efficient ways to find potential actors was the Players' Guide. Inside its hardbound cover were white glossy pages of tiny headshots of actors young and old, along with their names and - of course - their agent.
And though today it seems old-fashioned to call someone a character actor or, even worse, an ingenue, that's exactly how the Players' Guide divided the performers.
Below are a few shots from the 1967 Guide, featuring some famous faces and a few special friends of EAG.
