Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Bob Hope: I think they're going too far with this honesty thing. The other night on 'Wells Fargo' the heavies held up the stagecoach and gave back all the money from the week before.

Miss Hopper's All Star TV Show
20 March 2011 | by williwawSee all my reviews

I remember this TV show as one barely in his teens and recall the big promotion given to legendary Marion Davies appearing on this show looking wonderful and as a real movie star should. I also recall Hedda Hopper's great friend Lucille Ball appearing on this show; (Ball and Hopper were lifelong friends and Lucille Ball either bought or inherited Hopper's Rolls Royce after the columnist died. I found this show enjoyable and frankly was so young I did not recall all the major stars and the import they had on the Industry such as Gary Cooper or filmmakers such as Walt Disney This TV show combined the great (Cooper and Ms Ball) the Popular (Stephen Boyd, a Hedda Hopper favorite) and the old ( Ms. Davies) and the young ( Venetia Stevenson who after this show quit the business) This is a show I definitely would now appreciate more in particular seeing Gloria Swanson ( who can forget the fadeout of Sunset Blvd with Hopper in the sequence)?
