Written by Kenneth Anger, intriguing....

I recall watching this series which was shown in NY in the early 90's
usually later at night. Television was still decent entertainment,
then, real writers and Hollywood myths. Not trash reality we see today.
Anyway, the series often had Tony Curtis and his commentary regarding
various Hollywood scandals, the Jean Harlow house and her mysterious
early death. Interesting scenes of some of the celebrities residences.
The Normandy villa atop Laurel Canyon. The death of Marilyn Monroe and
her house on South Helena Drive in Santa Monica, which was later found
to have been fully video and audio-taped in every one of her rooms.
Just the sense of older earlier Hollywood, scandals that actually
happened and the mysteries surrounding them. I am not sure if they ever
did a segment on the "Black Dahlia" mystery murder, but came across
Anger's name as I was researching the "Order Temporalis Orientis- aka
the OTO" another group located in southern California. Intriguing and
excellent information for film historians, people interested in the
story behind the story. 10/10.
