Welcome to the Arliss Archives. I’m Bob Fells, a life-long fan of George Arliss (1868-1946), and by avocation, a film historian (silents and early talkies), pianist, music archeologist (I’ll explain this at some point), and author of a biography and film critique titled, George Arliss The Man Who Played God (Scarecrow Press, 2004).
Although this book was published a few years ago, I find myself continuing to research Mr. Arliss and collecting Arliss memorabilia for my personal collection. I have since published another two volumes as part of the ARLISS ARCHIVES inspired by this blog. If you are so inclined my three Arliss volumes can be found on Amazon.com. This blog is not about me – I get plenty of attention in my day job as an attorney and trade association executive. This blog is about my friend George Arliss so you won’t be reading or seeing very much about me around here. Please stop by often as I will be continuing adding new posts about once a month for the foreseeable future. I’d appreciate any comments you may care to offer. Thanks.
