Kudos to Greg Reitman
9 March 2005 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

As a member of Hollywood Heritage Organization, this was a real treat. For the first time the magic of Catalina Island was revealed through a lovely and researched documentary. Even more inspiring is that there is so much to be researched and filmed on the topic of Hollywood and how the stars lived in the golden ages. Perhaps Greg will feel the need to research other Golden Era hot spots and bring the stories to the attention of the public. Perhaps a story on the Roosevelt Hotel, or research into the many interesting architectural digs that have survived the every growing changes in Hollywood. I like to see that someone is preserving our rich history here in Hollywood. Kudos to Greg Reitman.
