Hollywood at Homeby Architectural Digest, Gerald Clarke (Introduction), Architectural Digest Editors
Among the most popular articles in Architectural Digest's illustrious eight-decade history is the series featuring the homes of Hollywood movie stars and directors since the 1930s. Hollywood at Home presents 25 of the best of those articles, offering an intimate look at some of the silver screen's most fascinating personalities, as reflected in their lavish, inventively designed, and, at times, outrageously opulent homes.
Mixing the old with the new-from Jean Harlow and Clark Gable to Steven Spielberg and, more recently, Diane Keaton-Hollywood at Home provides an up-close-and-personal room-by-room tour of the private residences of such Tinseltown immortals as Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Cary Grant and Randolph Scott, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Dennis Quaid, and Cher. The text and images appear as in the original articles, with minor editorial updates and, in a few cases, additional photography not seen in the original feature. Our endless fascination with the lifestyles of the rich and famous continues unabated, and this glamorous book will enthrall celebrity watchers as well as those interested in architecture and design.

This is a terrific book! It's a large coffee table book with rare photos of Jayne Mansfield, Jean Harlow, Judy Garland, Carole Lombard, and Marilyn Monroe in their homes. You get to see Jayne in her heart shaped bathtub, Jean looking at her autograph collection, and Judy singing in her bedroom. There are also some wonderful articles written by David Stenn, Gerald Clarke, and others. The book has some current actors in it too (John Travolta, Diane Keaton). It would make a wonderful gift for a classic film fan.
