Book Summary:

"Half of all marriages end in divorce--and then there are the really unhappy ones." --Joan Rivers Do you suppose that the person who first said "Life is stranger than fiction" might have had Hollywood marriages in mind? Why watch a romantic film starring a leading man and a leading lady when their real-life romances are so much more interesting? It seems that a celebrity's latest film can have a considerably longer life span in the theater than his or her marriage du jour. One would almost think that Tinseltown has come to embrace divorce as an accepted pastime. Some celebrities have seemingly collected spouses over the years, systematically adding notches in their belts of divorces. Cases in point: Zsa Zsa Gabor (nine), Lana Turner (eight), Elizabeth Taylor (nine), and Mickey Rooney (eight). This list appears to make Jennifer Lopez a mere novice with only three marriages, two divorces, and one terminated engagement to date. In The Hollywood Book of Breakups, James Robert Parish looks at scores of hot Hollywood romances that eventually fell apart. From the decade-long union of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman to the "just-for-show" nuptials of Rock Hudson and Phyllis Gates to the four-and-a-half-year marriage of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to the "other woman" divorce of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, Parish covers it all--from the burning embers to the fizzling fires of Hollywood breakups. You couldn't make this stuff up--and James Robert Parish doesn't need to. Hollywood writes its own drama when it comes to scandalous breakups.

Book Summary:

An authoritative and humorous look at Hollywood's ever-changing take on love, romance, and marriage over the decades From steamy silent classics like A Fool There Was to romantic musicals like Grease to epic schmaltz-fests like Titanic, Hollywood historian and bestselling author James Robert Parish provides a very personal (but quite factual) run-down on how the Hollywood dream factory has portrayed love, marriage, and divorce on the big screen. The Hollywood Book of Love reveals in an entertaining fashion how the attitudes and standards the audience absorbs from the movies influence their expectations in real-life relationships. Writing with his trademark dry wit and rich knowledge of American movie history, Parish provides perceptive and amusing takes on 200 feature films and offers tantalizing sidebar factoids on everybody from Liz, Bette, and Bogie, to Julia Roberts, Ethan Hawke, and Nicole Kidman.

Book Summary:

Part of the Encore Film Book Classics series, this is a reprint of the original text to The Fox Girls by James Robert Parish. One of Hollywood's oldest major studios is Twentieth Century-Fox, which began as Fox Film Corporation in 1915 in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Two years later studio head William Fox inaugurated a West Coast movie lot in Los Angeles. By 1935, in the midst of the Great Depression, the then financially-plagued film company had merged with Twentieth Century Pictures. The new entity was Twentieth Century-Fox under the leadership of industry veteran Darryl F. Zanuck who was a genius star-maker. Through various corporate changes during the twentieth century, the studio relied heavily on a series of sparkling leading ladies to attract filmgoers to its pictures. These vibrant actresses gave the studio its own distinctive quality over the decades. The Fox Girls spotlights 16 of the most striking and celebrated of the studio's notable leading ladies over the many years. The stunning lineup includes-in alphabetical order: THEDA BARA-the celluloid vamp famous for her catchphrase 'Kiss Me, My Fool!"; ANNE BAXTER-the one-girl stock company; JEANNE CRAIN-the radiant girl next door; LINDA DARNELL-the china-doll beauty; ALICE FAYE-the singing-and-dancing belle of the ball; JANET GAYNOR-the spunky waif; BETTY GRABLE-the pinup queen with All-American apple pie looks; JUNE HAVER-the song-and-dance colleen; SONJA HENIE-the Norwegian ballerina on ice; CARMEN MIRANDA-the Brazilian bombshell; MARILYN MONROE-the world's most provocative dumb blonde; SHEREE NORTH-the brassy showgirl; SHIRLEY TEMPLE-the dimpled child wonder; GENE TIERNEY-the lady aristocrat; RAQUEL WELCH-the love goddess of the 1970s; and LORETTA YOUNG-the girl who knew what she wanted. Detailed filmographies and incisive biographies of these distinctive big-screen personalities make The Fox Girls a unique volume-actually 16 books in one. This study of an enduring Hollywood film studio is also a mirror of the changing styles and tastes in American film entertainment. This then is The Fox Girls!

Book Summary:

A “this day in Hollywood history” reference that recounts the scandals of the stars—from Charlie Chaplin to Charlie Sheen. The real-life scandals of Hollywood’s personalities rival any drama they bring to life on the silver screen. This book provides 365 daily doses of high and low crimes, fraud and deceit, culled from Tinseltown’s checkered past. Whether it’s the exploits of silent-era star Fatty Arbuckle, the midcentury misdeeds of Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe, or the modern excesses of Lindsay Lohan, this calendar of Hollywood transgressions has a sensational true tale for every day of the year. It’s an entertaining and sometimes shocking trip down memory lane filled with sneaky affairs, box-office bombs, and careers cut short—sometimes by murder. It shows that the drama doesn’t end when the credits roll.
