Nostalgia Lives: New Book, 1930s Hollywood, Transports Readers to Hollywood's Bygone Golden Age
Explore tales of the rich and infamous and revel in the drama of a time long gone with 1930s Hollywood: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
New York, NY – Readers with a yearning for the bygone Golden Age of Hollywood can get a long, loving look at Tinseltown in the 1930s with the new non-fiction, 1930s Hollywood: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Vol. 1, published by Outskirts Press.
Well into the Prohibition era, deep in the throes of the Great Depression and the grip of a rising mafia presence, the '30s was primed for drama. That drama manifested itself in the innovative movie-making that emerged.
Author and movie buff Frank Brathwaite parlays a lifelong passion for all things Hollywood into a fascinating examination of the film industry's most colorful era: the 1930s. His non-fiction is teeming with fascinating facts, including:
•Surprising facts about the lives and careers of beloved stars like Shirley Temple. Hint: Not everyone was a fan.
•The juicy, if not newsworthy, gossip of the day, and how it got that way.
•Exclusive peeks at what the stars of the period wore, how they socialized and what a few were actually doing in their spare time while out roving about Hollywood after-hours.
•Tales of reckless, often scandalous, behavior by some of Hollywood's biggest stars.
The book includes a special chapter on the contributions of one of the era's greatest contributors to the Hollywood mystique, Frank Capra, whose rise to fame during America's Great Depression changed the art of storytelling – and the entire film industry – to this day.
