Overview

Hollywood Heat: Untold Stories of 1950s Hollywood by Steve Rowland

HOT INSIDER STORIES FROM HOLLYWOOD'S GOLDEN 1950s, TOLD IN TRUE PULP FICTION STYLE. "Elvis Presley and George Klein, one of Elvis's inner circle, pulled up in long black Cadillac limousine style. Elvis was at the wheel. I jumped in the backseat and we took off-three for the road." "The flag was dropped and James Dean, starting from 18th on the grid, shot through the pack balls out, like a man possessed. After a few laps he made it up to fourth place before a blown piston ended his day. Jimmy was turbulent with the situation." "The groove rocked in once more with a churning precision. Like sensual thunder, it shook the room with sexual vibrations. There on the bandstand, like a benevolent Buddha, dressed in Levis and an open neck shirt, was Marlon Brando. He was as cool as a night breeze over Alaska. With his hands in motion he caressed the congas, playing as if willing his adoring flock to follow him into the loving arms of immortality."

Steve Rowland's novel of great Hollywood legends is a must read for any studio executive under the age of 40. Oddly enough, it is sad how many persons that operate the places where these icons built, have not a clue of the industries history. The author clearly has personal knowledge and insight of stories that should and could make for a very interesting feature film. BIGHOLLYWOODAGENT
