Abstract

In 1925, the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation launched a talent development project for young actors and actresses. Housed in the East Coast Astoria studio complex, the Paramount Pictures School instructed 16 students in screen performance skills. The Paramount feature "FASCINATING YOUTH" (1926) was produced to highlight the graduates, although only Charles "Buddy" Rogers and Thelma Todd achieved any degree of stardom. The article describes the operation of the school and traces the subsequent careers of its graduates.
