Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.
