MY FIRST TIME IN HOLLYWOOD AN ANTHOLOGY (PPBK)

Synopsis

My First Time in Hollywood is a collection of intimate stories about coming to Southern California by forty-one legends of the film business, which also includes over sixty vintage photographs and illustrations. Actors, directors, set decorators, screenwriters, cinematographers, and editors—half of them women—give their initial impressions of Hollywood, tell of their struggle to find work, and recall their enduring love for making movies. Drawn from letters, speeches, oral histories, and autobiographies, each story is unique, but all speak to the universal struggle to discover our place, follow our passions, and become members of a community that will feed our soul. Some of these notable individuals include: Mary Pickford, Harold Lloyd, Cecil B. DeMille, Gloria Swanson, Hedda Hopper, Myrna Loy, Norma Shearer, Mary Astor, Ben Hecht, and Noel Coward.
