Hollywood lifestyles of today have nothing on those of the first half of the last century for opulence and glamour. David Wallace, author of Lost Hollywood, has unearthed new stories and fresh details about some of the era's biggest names and how they lived, worked, and played. The stars' real lives at the dawn of the studio era were infinitely more interesting than anything committed to celluloid, and they're all here. Hollywoodland explores, among other topics: --high society --"twilight" guys and gals --getting high --dream houses --great movie music and where it came from --star retreats and playgrounds --the mob and the movie business --celebrated on-screen and off-screen fashions Hollywoodland is rich and lively history about Hollywood's grandest era, and necessary reading for any fan of the movies and their earliest stars.
