Book Review: Gregory Paul Williams' 'The Story of Hollywood' Gets Paperback Release
The poster of Fairbanks towered over Hollywood Boulevard. What fun to see people on the rooftop of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel watching a movie premiere across the street at Grauman's and to see vintage photos of Barbara Stanwyck , Bette Davis , Ingrid Bergman and even little Shirley Temple out on the town. Also that Capitol Records built the first circular office tower in - still a landmark in Hollywood, or that the Emmy Award as we know it was redesigned in Hollywood in ?
All of these facts have tremendous meaning to trivia buffs who savor show business and the changing face of Hollywood through the years. The book features the famous faces and places that made the town legendary, offering a unique perspective on celebrity nightlife and the behind-the-scenes stories of day-to-day life.
Lavishly illustrated with over vintage images from the author's private collection, "The Story of Hollywood" brings new insights to readers with a passion for Hollywood and its place in the history of film, radio, and television. Gregory Paul Williams has been interested in Hollywood's history since he wrote "The Story of Hollywoodland", a book about the neighbourhood where he grew up. Beautifully illustrated and captioned the book is informative and entertaining. The book's creation was prompted by the writer's realization that the Hollywood that he grew up in was being torn down and replaced by bland undistinguished buildings.
This book is an archive of memories, lost dreams and stardust excitements.
