Like many of you, I have always been fascinated by the glamour, the glitter and the decadence of old Hollywood. I have walked the Hollywood streets, searching for the names of favorite celebrities along the Walk of Fame. I have stared in awe at the elaborate facades of the Chinese Theater and have pressed my own palms into the solidified handprints of film greats like Humphrey Bogart. I have always been intrigued by the tales of the movie stars and the secret inner workings of the great film studios.
But like the city of Hollywood itself, the legends of the place have a dark side. About the time that I got interested in ghosts and hauntings, I also got interested in the less glamorous side of Hollywood. I learned that the bright photographs of the sunny streets hid whispers of crime and corruption and that the elaborate homes and architecture hid tales of spirits who did not rest in peace.
There are many unsolved mysteries connected to Hollywood... not the least of which are its ghosts. And not surprisingly, this has never curbed the interest in the place and in fact, has probably enhanced it.
The lure of Tinseltown has been a part of America since the first silent film makers came west to the small town of Los Angeles at the turn of the century. What began as a scheme for movie maker Mack Sennett to make some extra money with a low-cost housing area called "Hollywoodland" became a movie colony for artists, writers and actors who came west to make it big.
The history of the region is a dark journey through tales of crime, corruption, death, murder and of course, Hollywood-style scandal. Nearly every tale of ghosts and hauntings in Hollywood involves some sort of terrible crime or an unsolved murder. Why is this?
