Comments & Further Information

First UK edition. Price still on dustjacket. Tanning to pages, mainly at the extremities. “A Chronicle of Hollywood in the fifties. It’s a vivid portrait of power, fame and sex in 1950s Hollywood, from the rise of tabloid journalism to the making of legendary icons. Colourful and humorous anecdotes of such public icons as Lana Turner, Rock Hudson and Kim Novak profile the celebrities’ lives away from the camera, telling of the private moments that were exploited by tabloids such as Confidential and gossip queens Louella Parsons, Hedda Hopper and Sheilah Graham.”
