If you have ever wondered what made Hollywood the Sin City of the world during the 1920s and how it finally cleaned itself up, this book will reveal some of the startling answers. Why is it that Hollywood stars, who seem to have everything -- money, fame, love -- find it necessary to take to the needle, booze, and the "dolls"? What is it about the "town" -- the industry -- that uses up talent as if it were some kind of stone object, without feelings, emotions, and driving ambitions, which finally is responsible for the destruction of its most important products? Is it the town or the touch of "talent" that drives the "beautiful people" towards escape through fast sex, wild parties, and the "happy pills"?
