Overview

Since the early twentieth-century, Beverly Hills, California, has been known for its movie stars and mansions. Here, in over 300 color and black and white postcards, Beverly Hills' glamorous heyday comes to life. Follow this famous city's development into the "Movie Star Capital," beginning in the early days when silent movie star Mary Pickford could be seen socializing at the Beverly Hills Hotel and, as Charlie Chaplin noted, "Sidewalks ran along and dissapeared into open fields..." Experience mid twentieth century Beverly Hills, a more trusting era when one could stroll past the residence of a favorite star, and perhaps even call on them for a visit! Gaze at Beverly Hills' grand hotels, like the Beverly Wiltshire, which opened in 1928, and later was home to Elton John and Andrew Lloyd Weber.
