The stories in this book are so amazing. I never realized how many scandals were covered up in classic Hollywood. After reading this book you feel like you know everyone's dirty little secrets. It's very well-researched and keeps your interest. I read the entire book in one night! My only complaint is the book wasn't long enough. I want to learn more about Lupe Velez, Carole Landis, Marion Davies, and the others stars I read about. I hope Mr. Fleming will be writing some more books soon.

This is a wonderful history of the early days of the movies. The stories are fabulous and the personalities are very interesting. Anyone interested in the true history of Hollywood will love this book. I did.

This is an interesting book about what really went on behind the scenes in Hollywood. It's very well researched and filled with great stories about classic stars. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of classic movies!

This book was an eye-popper! Some of the stories I knew before (Thelma Todd, Tyrone Power & Judy Garland, Loretta Young & Clark Gable) but these revelations are unheard of...Wallace Beery, Carole Landis, etc. so, a great read, although Fleming does tend to hop around. At least when he is giving a personal opinion, he lets you know. It is a shame that the modern celebrities are are so lambasted for their morals, they are doing nothing new, just in your face.

Marginal book, at best. The author goes on and on about Superman star, Reeves and other topics. Boring. Not recommended.
