Trivia

For makeup and costuming references from the era, the team relied heavily on George Hurrell's extensive collection of photographs. Hurrell was the Golden Age's famous Hollywood portrait photographer. See more »

Goofs

Despite what this series purports, Henry Willson was never elevated to film producer. The closest he came was Rock Hudson, at the peak of his stardom, awarding Willson a token associate producer credit on Come September (1961). See more »

I wanted to love it...

But quite frankly, was pushed way too hard. Damn near EVERYONE in Hollywood is gay? Hm, no, straight people do still exist. As a bisexual female, I found it to be trying too hard to shove our sexuality down the viewers' throat in hopes of gleaning some controversy or "kudos" from the LGBT community. Honestly, it would've hit a LOT harder if you'd simply told the truth. Reminded people that the world wasn't always as accepting* as it (mostly) is now. It was just way too much, and it did next to nothing for the plot, so it was pointless. :-/
