In Hollywood Remembered, a wide array of Tinseltown veterans share their stories of life in the city of dreams from the days of silent pictures to the present. The 35 voices, many of whom have come to know Hollywood inside-out, range from film producers and movie stars to restaurateurs and preservationists. Actress Evelyn Keyes recalls how, fresh from Georgia, she met Cecil B. DeMille and was soon acting in Gone With the Wind; Blacklisted writer Walter Bernstein tells how he transformed his McCarthy era-experiences into drama with The Front; Steve Allen speaks out on how Hollywood has changed since he first came there in the 1920s; and Jonathan Winters relates how he left a mental institution to come work with Stanley Kramer in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hollywood Remembered is a vivid work incorporating the personalities of the interviewees.... The memoirs are quite fun to read, and one does get a real feel for the Hollywood of yore. * Library Journal *
For most people around the world Hollywood is a state of mind, a fantasy. ... If you want to keep the place as Oz, stay away from Hollywood Remembered. But if you want to peek behind the curtain and see what it was really like, this oral history is a good place to start. -- Lawrence Grobel, author of The Hustons; Conversations with Brando; and Above the Line: Conversations about the Movies
A terrific book. Hollywood Remembered is Hollywood-To-Go-Hold-the-Mayo, an unusual glimpse into the great days of the movie business, from an angle rarely seen by the public. This is a must-buy for any film fan's book shelf. -- Marion Meade, author of The Unruly Life of Woody Allen
