Here, in one glittering volume, replete with tinsel, and dripping with love and venom, is a collection of over 3,000 quotes by some 700 movie personalities--those who have lived and toiled in Hollywood since the birth of the movie industry. In a sense these quotes give the essence and flavor of Hollywood as nothing else can. The cast of characters includes: Greta Garbo, Bob Hope, Elizabeth Taylor, W.C. Fields, Bette Davis, Alfred Hitchcock, Groucho Marx, Cecil B. DeMille, Sammy Davis Jr., Marlene Dietrich, Sir Laurence Olivier, John Wayne, Woody Allen, Laurel and Hardy, and hundreds more. A special chapter is devoted to Sam Goldwyn, Hollywood's leading independent film producer for 35 years. "Popcorn" and "paradise" may seem contradictory, but just as Hollywood ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime, so these two words sum up and typify what Hollywood was, is, and doubtless always will be so long as the silver screen maintains its hold on our lives.
