01.24.07 I thought this might shed a bit more objective view on some of the more salacious things mentioned in the Hollywood Babylon books, but that turned out not to be true. I mean, the prose isn't nearly as pronounced as the Holly Babys are but every story still oozes with the author's personal judgement of events. Certain items, like Fatty Arbuckle and Rock Hudson, get treated with kid gloves while others (Roman Polanski, Bob Crane) are downright mean. This took me a long time to get through and I'm really glad I'm through with it. not a very good book, and I probably won't read this guy's Hollywood Book of Death cover to cover now because it's even longer and probably even less fun to read. next.
