Not too bad an idea but, in the final analysis, not very good
After a bar room brawl ends in the accidental fatal shooting of a woman, a private investigator finds himself barred from doing any further business. Soon he finds himself in debt and with gangsters hovering about looking for their money, so he decides to accept a sleazy job taking incriminating photos of celebrities for a Hollywood gossip rag. Before long he comes to realise that his new work is being used as leverage for blackmail and even worse events follow.
Secret File: Hollywood does have a half-way interesting premise for a movie and one which remains pretty topical today given the public's continual obsession with gossip magazines and celebrity shenanigans. Despite the promise in the set-up, the film itself is only okay at best though. It's not terribly exciting and it sort of drags despite its short running time.
