Local literature lover and attorney Steven Gilbar was busy promoting his latest work, The Little Book of Montecito Actors at Tecolote in the upper village.

The 207-page book spotlights the stars of stage and screen who have lived in our rarefied enclave over the years, including Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell to more modern icons like Kevin Costner, Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Almost 100 actors are featured in potted biographies from the days of silent film to the Golden Age of Hollywood to the present day.
