Overview

With Hollywood's Celebrity Playground, Howard Johns picks up where his Palm Springs Confidential left off-this time covering the other fabled desert resort towns that stretch from Hollywood to Las Vegas. This book includes the million dollar cities of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and historic La Quinta-where TV kingpin Merv Griffin owns a 240-acre Arabian horse ranch and Oscar-winning director Frank Capra scripted the memorable films It Happened One Night and Lost Horizon.

Editorial Reviews

Think of this book as the coffee-table version of Hollywood Babylon. Howard Johns, who raised eyebrows and activated scandal sheets with his Palm Springs Confidential, is back with another full-bodied pictorial about the West Coast glitterati. Hollywood's Celebrity Playground offers juicy tidbits about silver-screen idols, powerhouse directors, and major money moguls. The book answers questions such as "Which American president had a home on the 11th hole of the El Dorado Country Club?" Adding to the fun are 200 rare black-and-white photos.
