Overview

Here's a great compilation for anyone who loves movies, television and radio programs from the 20th Century, the first century they all came into being. This volume contains thousands upon thousands of little known facts as well as hundreds of photographs, many very rare, from the broadcast and silver screen mediums of entertainment. It is a huge treasure trove of radio, movie and television history and trivia that you'd spend weeks, months and even years trying to find anywhere else!

So, if you'd be interested in knowing such facts as John Travolta turned down the role of Forrest Gump before it was given to Tom Hanks; Alan Sherman of Camp Granada fame created the I've Got A Secret television game show; Danny Thomas' real name was Muzyad Yakhoob; Orson Wells wrote, starred in and directed Citizen Kane when he was twenty-one years old; Lee Marvin was a U.S. Marine Corps war hero and was given a Purple Heart for wounds received in Saipan and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery; some of the actors in the Ben-Hur chariot race segment can be seen wearing wristwatches; Steven Spielberg named the mechanical shark in Jaws 'Bruce' after his lawyer; and Dr. Ruth was a trained Israeli sniper, then this book is definitely for you!

So go grab yourself a tub of hot buttery popcorn, a box of Milk Duds, Whoppers or Juicy Fruits and a giant-size soda pop, then sit back and enjoy this unparalleled nostalgic journey into the movies, radio and television shows from their earliest days right up to modern times. It's all right here in this one single volume chock full of things you never knew about the stars and behind the scenes people who brought it to us all, and it's all remembered right here in The 20th Century Hollywood Movies, Radio and Television Shows Trivia Book!
