Old Hollywood

Reading a book about old Hollywood mogul DF Zanuck. I’ve read lots of Hollywood biogs over the years, especially old Hollywood. Mayer, Thalberg, Minnelli, Goldwyn, An Empire of Their Own by Neil Garbler is probably my favourite and seems to be generally well-viewed as it quoted favourably in a number of the others. Originally it started as research for a project I was writing. I outlined the project (this must be about 8 years ago or so) but haven’t gone any further. It was also about celebrity so I’ve read more current biogs, Eastwood, Cruise, Spielberg, Scorcese but I always prefer the ones about Von Stroheim, Lang, Hitchcock, Peck, Grant. No doubt I will have read many of the anecdotes before but looking forward to getting into it.
