Summary
The Golden Age of Hollywood utilized many backgrounds, from industrial zones of film studios to the mansions where the glamorous live, partied, and were buried. Yet few traces of that Tinseltown have been documented. Bahn takes us on a tour that is part history, part archaeology, and enlivened by reminiscence
