In 1938, actress Hedda Hopper was given a chance to write a gossip column for the LA Times. It was called "Hedda Hopper's Hollywood." This also the title given to a series of six 9 or 10-minute documentary short films that accompanied feature films from December 1941 to October 1942. In the second entry, Desi Arnaz (without Lucy) was seen performing at the Mocombo. The title was also given to a 1964 episode of "The Beverley Hillbillies" which featured Hopper playing herself. In 2011, author Jennifer Frost used the title for her book Hedda Hopper's Hollywood: Celebrity Gossip and American Conservatism. See more
