The Life of Maurice Pollack, 1885-1918: A Birmingham Actor

Front Cover
Karn Publications, Jan 1, 1998 - Actors - 160 pages
This work presents a picture of Maurice Pollack's career as an actor against a background of children's theatricals in Birmingham at the turn of the century. This has been set in the context of his father's birth in Upper Silesia and emigration to Birmingham, of his mother's previous life in Austria and in the light of what it was possible to discover about Maurice's later life. Trained as a boy to be a female impersonator, Maurice married a pregnant girl at the age of 19 and enlisted in 1916 in The Bedfordshire Yeomanry, dying of wounds in the later stages of the Palestine campaign.
