A quick read with many interesting tidbits about the evolving of Hollywood in its begining days. Interesting and sometimes shocking images but in all a good book. It would be interesting to have one written about today's Hollywood.

An absolutely wonderful book with a lot of scandalous photos. I have an old hardback copy of this book and I love it! I've also used various photos in the book as artistic inspiration for black and white drawings and this, that, and the other. True or not, the stories are a fabulously juicy insight into Old Hollywood.

Good book. No current scandals though. Written in 1975, it mostly deals with the old Hollywood of the 20's through the 40's.

A fascinating account of the crazy lives of Hollywood stars beginning at the silent era through 60's - along with countless b&w photos. Stories range from drug addiction & adultery to mob murders, suicides & rape.

I love this book, I got it to add to my library. I read it twenty years ago and was fascinated by the Hollywood Folklore. This truly is a great piece of glossy fluff!
