Hollywood History

               Hollywood History Film Clips

Articles about World War II Hollywood can be read here.

Humphrey Bogart and his Feud with the Hollywood Press (Pageant Magazine, 1956)

"There was a time, Humphrey Bogart maintains, when he saw all interviewers and tried to answer all questions put to him..."

"But I can't take it anymore, I've had to cut the fan magazines off my list entirely. Just the sheer smell of them drives me crazy. They smell of milk. The interviewers themselves treat you like a two-year-old child with their will-Debbie-marry-Eddie and can-Lance-Fuller-live-without-a-wife kind of idiocy. You know the whole sorry groove of the thing."

Lana Turner (Quick Magazine, 1949)

When this Hollywood profile first appeared on paper, actress Lana Turner (1921 Ė 1995) was all of twenty-nine years of age and about to begin working on A Life of Her Own, it was her thirtieth movie; her last four films had nearly grossed a record-breaking $20 million, and her smiling mug was on each and every Hollywood fan magazine that could be found.

"Today, the sleek, gray-eyed Lana has shed the plumpness of two years ago, keeps her weight between to 118 and 127 lbs... Now Lana is as shapely as she was in those early days. She has the 'perfect' figure: 5 ft. 3 in., 34-in. bust, 24-in. waist, 34.5 in. hips."

The article is illustrated with photographs from eight of her pre-'49 movies and lists all the husbands that she'd collected up to that same period (she had acquired eight husbands before she was through).


The Bigger the Star, The Bigger The Jerk (Coronet Magazine, 1965)

"Show me a good fellow backstage, and I'll show you a lousy actor onstage" famously stated W.C. Fields. The author, former Hollywood press agent David Hanna, proves the comedian's point with numerous anecdotes drawn from both Broadway and Hollywood.


Shirley MacLaine at 22 (Modern Screen, 1956)

Arriving in Hollywood by way of "The Trouble with Harry" in 1955, and cute as buttons - Shirley MacLaine (b. 1934) was the adopted "little sister" of the Rat Pack, that odd movie star whose sensitive skin burned too easily in the California sun and one of the few starlets who was actually capable of sewing her own clothes.


Clark Gable: Cad (Confidential Magazine, 1955)

We all know that there are two sides to every story, but not in this article. If the utterances of Clark Gable's first wife (Josephine Dillon, 1884 - 1971) are true, then we have no choice but to believe that Gable was a real stinker.

"When Miss Dillon left for Hollywood, he followed. A year later they were married in Los Angeles by gospel minister A.C. Smithers. Josephine traded the Dillon name to become Mrs. Clark Gable. It didnít take her long to discover quite a bit about her new young husband. He didnít even have a grammar school education. He knew nothing about acting. And he was penniless. They lived in the money Josephine made as a dramatic coach. There wasnít much of it, because her best pupil was her big-eared husband; his lessons were 'on the house'. He sopped up what she knew like a sponge."


3-D Movies Arrive (Quick Magazine, 1953)

This article confirms that the 3-D film format was brought into existence in 1952 for the same reasons it exists today: to get TV audiences off of their wallets and into the theaters.

If 3-D didn't work, the producers could always attract audiences with this...
