    That sounds like a fun topic!! There are a few books out there on animal actors… Not So Dumb: Animals in the Movies by Raymond Lee (1970). And there are other books out there that focus on individual “stars” like the dog that played Toto, RinTinTin, Cheetah. I think there may be a couple on some horse actors as well.

    Yeah, I have the 1970 book…it’s looooong outta print. There have been individual bios but a lot of the animal stars, especially from the silents, have been overlooked.
