Even though it was released in 1950, Ken Murray offers a wonderful perspective on Hollywood. We're all used to the scandalous depictions so easily reported, but finally someone has done what has been truly needed from this wild town. Ken has assembled one-of-a-kind videos of some of Hollywood's elite, portraying fun-loving and even gracious stars in somewhat private settings, intimately revealing their more personal side. Your opinions of the old Hollywood will soften as Ken narrates his experiences with famous stars. Most memorable scenes are with Kirk Douglas and Walt Disney. Most notable and revealing is the presentation of the great mansion, the Hearst Castle. You'll enjoy watching the stuffy upper-crust goof-off in a way we all can relate with. If you can hear me, thank you Ken for sharing all those wonderful memories. Memories I too, now enjoy!
