Read full description of the books:
It was about a time for me to read this cult classic named as Hollywood Babylon, the bible of all dark and twisted from the corners of the Hollywood, starting from the roaring twenties.
I love all things of "Old Hollywood", "The Golden Hollywood" or whatever one wants to call it, and not least the darker side of it with murders, accidents, sex, drugs and no rock 'n' roll. Oh the scandals, oh the gossip, oh the glamour that hides the misery, the seeekrets.
So much seeekrets.
That said, I have tons of books waiting to be read out of all the drama, and there is no way for me ever going into them before reading this legendary work that was first published in '59. Obviously as such it is somewhat outdated because you can easily find the wanted info just with the help of Google. There has been more books written with more depth, and more detailed and changed info, but damn does this work as a quick read, as a companion to your sweet chocolate bar (I was eating the whole bar of white chocolate while rabidly turning the pages).
Hollywood Babylon shortly chronicles the journey of Hollywood through scandals starting in the late '19 and ending with the late 60's. The entries of each case are quite short, containing the basic info/speculation that is tied up with a steady flow of what happens in the industry during the dark glamour of moving pictures.
The writing is gripping and fast going, it keeps you easily spellbound to the stories you are reading, not least because of the fascinatingly fabulous photographs that take an solidly big space on the pages of this book. The photographs alone are the reason to own and surf this one through.
You could always Google, you could always read more studied and less gossipy work out of the history of Hollywood, but is that really what you want when going deep into the mud?
