The book draws a fine line between the Hollywood community and the Hollywood industry. Since Asians in Hollywood were the least documented during the early years, the Filipino community was their center focus. The book does a great job of pointing this out.

This is the same author who wrote L.A.'s Historic Filipinotown. Great rarely seen pics and information. These are "must-have" collections.
