Hughes and Harlow: Angels in Hell PLOT
22 May 2002 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

Two amazing people in an amazing age, racing the clock against a backdrop of Hollywood in the roaring Twenties. It's a love story, a suspense story and a story about the most colorful era of the world's most colorful history. Starring Victor Holchak, Lindsay Bloom and David Bloom.
