I stumbled across Moving Pictures while searching for Hollywood memorabilia and biographies, and was immediately drawn to the cover art. Upon reading the inviting description,I decided to buy it on a whim. I have to say that it was excellent $8.00 very well spent. The novel is a fun and friendly read that brings you back to Hollywood's heyday, the glamour and the scandal,with an engaging writing style that keeps the e-pages turning! This is the first of what I hope to be many novels by Hyatt, whose career I will be following. I highly recommend Moving Pictures, and am interested in what others have to say about the work.
