Hollywood's Most Wanted: The Top Ten Book of Lucky Breaks, Prima Donnas, Box Office Bombs, and Other Oddities (Most Wanted Series) by Floyd Conner

Warren Beatty's first job was as a catcher in theater. When Jack Nicholson first arrived in Hollywood, he sorted fan mail for cartoon characters Tom and Jerry. Glamorous Halle Berry once prepared for a role by not bathing for days. Alan Ladd was discovered operating a hotdog stand outside a studio. For his fifty-fifth birthday, John Barrymore was given woman wrapped in cellophane. George Hamilton used to throw away his socks after wearing them only once. Tough guy Charles Bronson was so poor as a kid that he wore his sister's hand-me-down dresses. Judy Garland was turned down for in the "Our Gang" comedies> Ronald Reagan rejected the role of Rick in Casablanca .

The History of Hollywood is filled with the strange, the bizarre, and the unbelievable. The seventy lists in Hollywood's Most Wanted describe in amusing detail Hollywood's top ten worst movies, most dreadful performances, biggest bombs, funniest real names, sexiest blonde bombshells, most intriguing mysteries, most audacious publicity stunts, oddest couples, most inauspicious debuts, weirdest pre-acting jobs, most scandalous behavior, strangest deaths-and more.
