Celebrity gossip meets history in this compulsively readable collection from Buzzfeed reporter Anne Helen Peterson. This guide to film stars and their deepest secrets is sure to top your list for movie gifts and appeal to fans of classic cinema and hollywood history alike. Believe it or not, America’s fascination with celebrity culture was thriving well before the days of TMZ, Cardi B, Kanye's tweets, and the #metoo allegations that have gripped Hollywood. And the stars of yesteryear? They weren’t always the saints that we make them out to be. BuzzFeed's Anne Helen Petersen, author of Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, is here to set the record straight. 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 friend • The heartbreaking story of Montgomery Clift’s rapid rise to fame, the car accident that destroyed his face, and the “long suicide” that followed • Fatty Arbuckle's descent from Hollywood royalty, fueled by allegations of a boozy orgy turned violent assault • Why Mae West was arrested and jailed for "indecency charges" • And much more Part 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. Based on Petersen's beloved column on the Hairpin, but featuring 100% new content, Scandals of Classic Hollywood is sensationalism made smart.

Thirteen sensational tales of sex, lies, violence, and murder from the early decades of Hollywood. The dawning of the nineteenth century brought with it a new era for entertainment. Vaudeville was the preferred form of entertainment, until the popularization of the silent film. This new medium proved to be a draw for many of the stars of the Vaudevillian stage and soon they migrated to the exciting possibilities that the movies had to offer. Audiences were instantly captivated by the stars of the silent screen. The early days of Hollywood were full of glamour and a newfound decadence. The stars in these films were catapulted to fame and fortune and the spotlight of the public eye. But the real people behind the glamour were far different from the characters that audiences knew and loved, and much like Hollywood today, the lives of the stars were often full of scandal and debauchery. This book examines the forgotten scandals of Hollywood’s early years, featuring silent and silver screen stars like Jean Harlow, Mae West, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, and Errol Flynn. Don’t let the romanticized black and white world of yesterday fool you. Their stories are rife with sex, drugs, and murder.

Since 1929, Hollywood’s brightest stars have flocked to the Chateau Marmont as if it were a second home. An apartment building-turned-hotel, the Chateau has been the backdrop for generations of gossip and folklore: where director Nicholas Ray slept with his sixteen-year-old Rebel Without a Cause star Natalie Wood; Jim Morrison swung from the balconies; John Belushi suffered a fatal overdose; and Lindsay Lohan got the boot after racking up nearly $50,000 in charges in less than two months. But despite its mythic reputation, much of what has happened inside the Chateau’s walls has eluded the public eye—until now. With wit and insight, Shawn Levy recounts the wild revelries and scandalous liaisons, the creative breakthroughs and marital breakdowns, the births and deaths to which the hotel has been a party. Vivid, salacious, and richly informed, The Castle on Sunset is a glittering tribute to Hollywood as seen from inside the walls of its most hallowed hotel.

THE HOLLYWOOD SCANDALS is a trio of two-act plays by Hollywood biographer, historian, screenwriter and playwright Michael B. Druxman, each inspired by one of the most sordid events ever to shock the Movieland community. Filled with rampant sex, suicides and even murder, these three black comedies present Tinseltown at its darkest. B MOVIE tells of the Franchot Tone/Barbara Payton/Tom Neal affair, a torrid and violent triangle that exploded in the early 1950s and kept giving the tabloid press spicy items for well over a decade. Rex Harrison is the central character of SEXY REXY, a brilliant "Henry Higgins" in MY FAIR LADY, but totally disliked by his show business colleagues. Harrison's career was almost destroyed in the 1940s when his mistress, actress Carole Landis, committed suicide, an act that was repeated years later by a former wife, actress Rachel Roberts. LANA & JOHNNY WERE LOVERS deals with perhaps the most sensational celebrity scandal of the 20th century, the affair between movie queen Lana Turner and mobster Johnny Stompanato, who met his violent end in 1958 at the hand of Turner's teenage daughter. The plays utilize simple costumes and props, and are designed to be staged on a single setting, with shifts in lighting to denote changes in time and place.

"Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul." – Marilyn Monroe It is over 100 years since Hollywood became the centre of American cinema and, while it has always presented itself as a place of glamour and home to the beautiful and talented, from its very creation there was a darker side to Tinseltown. Film-makers didn’t just move to southern California for its sunny weather, they went West to evade the patent laws restricting the use of movie cameras. From its earliest days, Hollywood, the home of fantasy, created a hothouse of excess – too much money, too much adulation, too much expectation and too much ego. Some actors would trade sex in the, often vain, hope of career advancement, mobsters muscled in on the unions and extorted the studios, while the accountants appear to be among Hollywood’s most creative people, managing to ensure that even the Star Wars films haven’t yet shown a profit. But while stars have always been indulged, once their moment in the limelight has passed, their fall can be cruel. From the setting up of the studios by the movie moguls to the corporations that run them today, from drug addictions to McCarthy-era witch-hunts to the Mob, Dark History of Hollywood is the story of sex and excess, murder and suicide, ambition and betrayal, and how money can make almost everyone compromise. Intensively researched and superbly entertaining, Dark History of Hollywood reveals that the stories behind the silver screen are at least as gripping as many of those on it.

In the 1950s, Confidential magazine, America's first celebrity scandal magazine, revealed Hollywood stars' secrets, misdeeds, and transgressions in gritty, unvarnished detail. Deploying a vast network of tipsters to root out scandalous facts about the stars, including their sexual affairs, drug use, and sexuality, publisher Robert Harrison destroyed celebrities' carefully constructed images and built a media empire. Confidential became the bestselling magazine on American newsstands in the 1950s, surpassing Time, Life, and the Saturday Evening Post. Confidential's spectacular rise was followed by an equally spectacular fall. Stars filed multimillion dollar libel suits against the magazine, and the state of California, prodded by the film studios, prosecuted its publisher for obscenity, culminating in a famous, star-studded Los Angeles trial in 1957. The lawsuits forced Confidential to end its scandalmongering, and stopped printing its sleazy gossip in 1958. However, the magazine's legacy lives on in our culture's obsession with gossip and celebrity scandal. This is Confidential's story, how the magazine revolutionized celebrity culture and American society in the 1950s and beyond. With its bold red, yellow, and blue covers, screaming headlines, and tawdry stories, Confidential exploded the candy-coated image of movie stars that had been sold to the public by Hollywood and the press. It transformed America from a nation of innocents to a more sophisticated, worldly people, wise to the phony and constructed nature of celebrity. It shifted reporting on celebrities from an enterprise of concealment and make-believe to one that was more frank, bawdy, and true. Confidential's success marked the end of an era of hush-hush--of secrets, closets, and sexual taboos--and the beginning of our age of tell-all exposure. It was the forerunner of People, the National Enquirer, and TMZ.com, and was more outrageous and raunchy than all of them.

Hollywood in 1937 is a town unlike any other, filled with fame, fortune, and excitement. It's also a town filled with scandal-both hidden and public. When gay private investigator Oakley Webster uncovers a mysterious connection between some of Hollywood's celebrity Jewish community and Nazi Germany, he'll rely on the help of some of Tinseltown's biggest names to uncover the truth. What is the cost of doing business during those turbulent times? Why does it take the Second World War for the media to reveal what's really going on? And how does Hollywood manage to silence even Louella Parsons, its most powerful gossip columnist, once she learns the truth? What is the true but little-known connection between Jewish-owned film studios and Nazi Germany? What is the possible story behind the fall of William Haines, the first openly gay star in Hollywood, and the role of Louis B. Mayer, cofounder of Metro-Goldwyn Mayer studios? How does a big-screen face like Joan Crawford factor in? In this history-based tale, author David Wallace creatively transports his readers to a glamorous era filled with not-so-glamorous secrets.
