The history of women in Hollywood seldom gets past the actresses who have graced the silver screen. And while their story is important on their own merits, women have also, since the early days, been active in producing, in studio work, in politics, and in fashioning the films we see today. Quiet on the set!

Mike Bell loves American history! With a master’s degree in both history and teaching, and an undergrad degree in political science, he has enjoyed a varied career in teaching and historical interpretation. Mike appeared on a History Channel special about PT 109, and for over 20 years, he has portrayed many historical figures, including Butch Cassidy and Sam Houston.
