Abstract:

"Paramount Pictures of the 1940s and 1950s feasted on gritty dramas, such as Double Indemnity, Detective Story, and Sunset Boulevard; iconic cinema recounted in a film noir or a documentary-narrated style. The most popular series of movies on the sudio lot, however, involved crooner Bing Crosby, comedian Bob Hope, and sidekick Dorothy Lamour in the very lucrative "Road" comedies. To that end, Forgotten Hollywood is a highly successful franchise of road-less-traveled stories from an award-winning book series, a weekly radio show, a cable podcast, a documentary in production, and a blog site at www.forgottenhollywood.com. This journey includes supporting players who appeared below the titles of memorable movies. Road to Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is the latest in the literary path that delivers metaphoric Hollywood-and-Vine moment intersecting Americana and tinsel town."--Back cover.
