This review is from: Hollywood Babylon (Mass Market Paperback)
How anyone could be gullible enough to believe the easily-disprovable "facts" in this book is beyond me. Anger (a failed actor and director) got his revenge out on the town that scorned him. There are too many ludicrous factual errors and miscaptioned photos for me to list herein, but suffice it to say that (to paraphrase a comment on Lillian Hellman) every word in it is a lie, including "and" and "the." Legitimate historians everywhere should curse the existence of this book.

It is not meant to be a historically accurate book, it's a book of his personal views and rumours, dreams and whispers that are created by Hollywood and especially by people who write about it. See a documentary about the book if you yourself want to be accurate.
