Bringing Forgotten Golden Age Hollywood Back To Life In A New Book
Hollywood's always been Insta-ready, even before Instagram. The account @ThisWasHollywood has nearly 750,000 followers, all thanks to sharing images and stories from classic Hollywood.
Now account creator Carla Valderrama has written a deeply researched book, This Was Hollywood: Forgotten Stars and Stories, looking into the moments from classic Hollywood that don't continue to be retold time and time again. It even features some never-before-told stories, including one golden age Hollywood child star's #MeToo story.
The author dug through archives at libraries, museums, and movie studios so that she could tell these stories, as well as interviewing some of the last remaining links to that Hollywood.
"I don't want to give people anything that they can find on the Internet for free, which in this day and age is pretty hard," Valderrama said.
