Summary "Hollywood is a transitory place. Stars and studios rise and fall. And yet And yet one place in Southern California built in the 1920s by (allegedly murdered) producer Thomas Ince, acquired by Cecil B. DeMille, now occupied by has been the home for hundreds of the most iconic and legendary films and television shows in the world for a remarkable and star-studded one hundred years. This bizarre, magical place was the location for Tara in Gone with the Wind and the home of King Kong and Superman, of Tarzan and Batman, of the Green Hornet, of Eliot Ness, of Barney Fife, of Rebecca, of Citizen Kane, of Hogan's Heores and Gomer Pyle, of Lassie, of A Star Is Born and Star Trek, and at least twice of Jesus Christ. For decades, every conceivable star in Hollywood, from Clark Gable to Warren Beatty, worked and loved and gave indelible peformances on the site. And yet, today, it is completely forgotten." -- Description provided by publisher.
