Description

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. Part biography, part cultural history, the stories contained in this book cover the stuff that films are made of: love, sex, drugs, illegitimate children, illicit affairs, and botched cover-ups. Based on Anne Helen Petersen's popular column on the Hairpin, Scandals of Classic Hollywood is sensationalism made smart.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: People are fascinated by movie actors, but sometimes that adoration goes too far. This audiobook tells stories of actors whose lives were affected, sometimes destroyed, by Hollywood. Narrator Romy Nordlinger performs the work in a breathy voice like that of a radio gossip columnist, which is highly effective, considering the subject matter. Some of the stories are familiar; others are new and shocking, conjuring sympathy for actors such as Judy Garland, Dorothy Dandridge, and Jean Harlow for the horrific price they paid for fame. The offstage lives of Montgomery Clift, Humphrey Bogart, Douglas Fairbanks, and others were as interesting as the characters they played. The audiobook ends rather abruptly and would be improved by an epilogue to talk about lessons learned by Hollywood, if any. M.S. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
