Hollywood History

               Hollywood History Film Clips


The Marilyn Monroe articles have been moved here.

The Show-Biz Blood of Cecil B. DeMille (Pic Magazine, 1941)

"At the age of 63, after 44 years in show business, Cecil B. De Mille is still producing. He can't stop and he probably never will. He is first, last and all the time a showman. The show business is in his blood, and whether he is on a set or taking his leisure at home, his heart and mind are in the theater. He loves to have people around him so that he can play a part, for consciously or unconsciously, he is always acting... C.B.'s father was an actor and playwright, and later a partner of David Belasco. His mother was an actress, and later a very successful play agent."

The article goes into more depth outlining De Mille various triumphs in silent film and his work on The Squaw Man.

 

Judy Garland (Click Magazine, 1940)

This magazine profile of Judy Garland (né Francis Ethel Gumm, 1922 - 1969) appeared alongside the Mickey Rooney article posted above, written at a time when she was at the top of her game. The article tells of her rise to stardom, from the time she was first noticed onstage with her sisters in Lake Tahoe to her starring roll in The Wizard of Oz just the year before.

"Still, her favorite picture is the one that shot her up to join the movie fans top-ten, Love Finds Andy Hardy. Because audiences could see with one eye shut that the Rooney-Garland team was one of the cutest to come out of Hollywood, they demanded more of the same, got it in Babes in Arms, will get it again in Andy Hardy Meets a Debutante and Strike Up the Band."

 

Yvonne De Carlo Arrives (Collier's Magazine, 1945)

A 1945 Collier's Magazine article about Yvonne De Carlo (a.k.a. Lilly Munster: 1922 – 2007) that appeared shortly after her first big break in Hollywood, Salome, Where She Danced. At the time of this interview the actress had well-over fifteen minor films on her resume but the journalist chose to claim that Salome was her first, just for the unbelievable glamor of it all; he also chose to shave three years off her age.

"Yvonne De Carlo was born twenty years ago in Vancouver, British Columbia...She was a featured dancer at Earl Caroll's and earned the undying respect of the producer by tipping the scales at a svelte 115 pounds, standing on the runway at a mere 5 feet four inches, and by displaying an 11 -/2 -inch neck, a 36 bust, a 24 waist, 32 hips a 7 1/2 -inch ankle, and 15 2/3 -inch wrist."

 

The Young Nancy Reagan (Modern Screen, 1951)

Published in a Hollywood fan magazine some months prior to her engagement with Screen Actors Guild President Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004) was this 1951 profile of the actress Nancy Davis (born Anne Frances Robbins: 1921 - 2016). A gossipy yet informative article that covers her days at Smith College, her relationship with capitol "H" Hollywood stars Alla Nazimova and Walter Houston, the eight films in which she had acted in up to that time and the various assorted reactions she instilled in such directors as William Wellman and Dore Schary.

A 1942 article by the young Ronald Reagan can be read here...

 

Rita Hayworth (Rob Wagner's Script, 1946, American Magazine, 1942)

A 1946 article from "Script", a semi-chic Beverly Hills magazine (it went belly-up in 1949), explaining just how it came to pass that a sweet, little Brooklyn girl named Margarita Carmen Cansino became Rita Hayworth (1918 – 1987):

"Then came reincarnation. Rita discarded her Spanish name, gave away her dancing costumes, did something to her hairline, stuck a y into her mother's family name (Joseph Haworth, same family, toured with Edwin Booth) and so on to the big time and 'Cover Girl' and 'Tonight and Every Night'."

"So the girl with a Spanish father and an Anglo-Saxon mother becomes the typical American girl to thousands of American soldiers abroad, and that, too, is as it should be."

One of the First Katherine Hepburn Interviews (Collier's Magazine, 1933)

It was 1933 interviews like this one that made the studio executives at RKO go absolutely bonkers; what were they to do with Katharine Hepburn (1907 – 2003)? She simply refused to take all matters Hollywood with any degree of seriousness; although she hadn't been a movie actress for very long at all, Katherine Hepburn was downright impious and goofy when reporter's questions were put to her:

"'Is it true that you have three children?' asked the interviewer."

"'I think it's six,' she answered."

Such responses served only to frustrate the members of the fourth estate to such a high degree and it seemed only natural that the fan magazine journalists would want to have the final word as to who Katherine Hepburn really was...

-But the Hollywood press did like her future co-star Carry Grant, click here to read it.
