Description:
Gossip meets history a compulsively readable collection of Hollywood's most notorious clashes and controversies in the spirit of 'Hollywood Babylon'Believe it or not, America's fascination with celebrity culture was thriving well before the days of TMZ, Perez Hilton, Charlie Sheen's breakdown and allegations against Woody Allen. And the stars of yesteryear? They weren t always the saints that we make them out to be. BuzzFeed columnist Anne Helen Petersen is here to set the record straight with 'Scandals of Classic Hollywood.' Pulling little-known gems from the archives of film history, Petersen reveals eyebrow-raising information, including: The smear campaign against the original It Girl, Clara Bow, started by her best friendThe heartbreaking story of Montgomery Clift s rapid rise to fame, the car accident that destroyed his face, and the long suicide that followedFatty Arbuckle's descent from Hollywood royalty, fueled by allegations of a boozy orgy turned violent assaultWhy Mae West was arrested and jailed for 'indecency charges'And much morePart biography, part cultural history, these stories cover the stuff that films are made of: love, sex, drugs, illegitimate children, illicit affairs, and botched cover-ups. But it's not all just tawdry gossip in the pages of this book. The stories are all contextualized within the boundaries of film, cultural, political, and gender history, making for a read that will inform as it entertains.
