"In the late 1920s, through the '30s, '40s, and '50s, young people around the world sought fame in the paradise known as Hollywood, Canadians were no exception!"

"Jack Warner (London, Ontario) was head of the important Warner Brothers studio." "These are their real stories, not phoney biographies prepared by studio publicists. They are proof that truth is stranger than fiction and much more interesting."--Jacket.
