All the dirt on Tinseltown - 100 years of sex, suicide, sudden death, robbery, murder and mayhem
From the 1920s to Hollywood's Golden Age in the 1960s and right up to the present day, get the low-down on La-La Land, behind the scenes. Times may change, but people, it seems, don't.
Michelle Morgan draws on fresh archival material to uncover more than 60 Hollywood scandals in intimate detail. Each chapter is a story in itself, a fascinating glimpse into the more sordid side of storied showbiz. The scandals are by turns revealing, tragic, outrageous and even, at times, entertaining, such as when Zsa Zsa Gabor clobbered a policeman.
They include the tragic death of Whitney Houston; the fatal stabbing of Lana Turner's boyfriend; the disappearance of Walter Collins, whose abduction was revisited in the movie Changeling; the sad story of Patricia Douglas, raped at a party for MGM executives, then humiliated in court; the death of starlet Virginia Rappe which resulted in the downfall of comedian Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle; the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split, and many more.
