⇗ [PDF]-Free Download か Hollywood: Did You Know?  ⦒ Kindle Author Alan Royle ⨠ ⇗ [PDF]-Free Download か Hollywood: Did You Know? ⦒ Kindle Author Alan Royle ⨠ Welcome to this my tenth book Hollywood Did You Know is a collection of tidbits of information about the content or making of around 400 movies, ranging from the earliest days of the silent era to the present time I have utilised anecdotes and comments from scores of biographies authorised and unauthorised , as well as Internet sources, magazine articles, interviews and TV appearances If, like me, you are fascinated by the world of movies, particularly the days of the studio system, I think you shall find than enough items here to satisfy your curiosity I am currently researching a second volume along similar lines.For elderly readers I should point out that there is a considerable amount of bad language herein, simply because I quote actors and actresses verbatim For many of them even the so called greats , peppering their reminiscences with expletives is commonplace I make no apology for this, however, for I think it is important to present these individuals as they really were, minus the studio hype that tended to elevate them to the status of flawless gods and godesses Very few lived up to their glowing reputations, Im afraid Having said that, I believe that the temptations ever present for these men and women who were suddenly faced with enormous wealth and universal adoration, would test the resolve of most of us, saints and all And saints have always been few and far between in Tinsel Town.When I published my first book Hollywood Warts n All Volume 1 in 2005, I was accused of muck raking, of tarnishing the reputations of deceased stars who could no longer defend themselves I still get the occasional brickbat along those lines even today, but times have changed Over the past 20 years or so, hundreds of books have been published about the good old days of the studio system not only stars biographies, but accounts from a diverse range of previously unheard from sources Maids, bodyguards, chauffeurs, secretaries, bell hops, agents, family members and acquaintances of the rich and famous etc, now put their memories into print, confirming much of what I have been writing about for almost a decade and a half.Of course, there are still those who rail against anyone who deigns to question the snow jobs churned out by studio publicity departments down the decades the standard complaint being the usual one the dead cannot defend themselves Well, there have been books written about Napoleon Bonaparte and Hitler than most anyone else, yet no one complains of either man being unable to defend himself So, again I make no apolgies for anything included in this publication, unless the reader comes across an unforseen error I may have accidentally overlooked, in which case I apologise unreservedly.
