On May 20th 1992, 75 photographers from 12 countries, including six Pulitzer Prize winners, began snapping their shutters in a 24-hour race to capture, on film, the essence of Hollywood. The photographers went behind the scenes, onto the sets, into the homes and fast cars to discover the real Hollywood. After much shifting and selection, 225 of these photographs are included in this book, with pictures of directors, actors and producers. The rounded portrait that emerges is one of the world's most famous cities providing a fascinating insight into an extraordinary phenomena.

"Lavish" cannot begin to describe this new addition to the "Day in the Life" photographic series. The book boasts the work of 75 acclaimed photographers, who shot their unique views of Hollywood's many faces during one 24-hour period. The result is an oversized, colorful, and visually magnetic volume. Candid looks at stars, behind-the-scenes staff, and local characters are interspersed with movie sets, graveyards, landscapes, props/special effects, and the like. There are several essays and excerpts from interviews with studio executives. A bit more text would have enhanced the overall balance and informational appeal of the book. However, the captions are knowledgeable, witty, and substantial in content. Recommended for popular collections, especially since patrons may have seen the one-hour documentary on the book, which aired on Showtime during December.
