"From screen legends who have faded into obscurity to new revelations about the movies' biggest stars, This Was Hollywood unearths the most fascinating little known tales from the birth of Hollywood through its Golden Age. The shocking fate of the world's first movie star. Clark Gable's secret love child. The cat who conquered Hollywood. The film that nearly ended Paul Newman's career. The never before told #metoo story of former child star. These tales and many more unfold in this volume that is by turns riveting, comical, maddening, and inspiring. Author Carla Valderrama -- creator of Instagram's @ThisWasHollywood -- draws on new interviews, archival research and an exhaustive library of photographs to present a compelling and stunning catalogue of the lost history of the movies." -- Provided by publisher.
