Scandal & Mystery in Hollywood History ON DEMAND
by Betty Jo Tucker

From September 24 through October 7, Movie Addict Headquarters features an ON DEMAND interview with celebrated Hollywood author and film historian Laurie Jacobson, who discusses DISHING HOLLYWOOD, her scintillating book about the most notorious scandals that have rocked Tinseltown from the early part of the 20th century up to the present. Tales of lives cut short, unsolved mysteries, dramatic suicides and steamy affairs fill the pages of Jacobson’s revealing romp through some of Hollywood’s biggest scandals involving stars like Gary Cooper, Lana Turner, Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra, Natalie Wood, River Phoenix and many more.         

Listeners can hear this interview at any time by clicking on the BlogTalkRadio link at the end of this article.

“Wherever they’re discussing a scandal, a ghost or a dead movie star, I’m there,” Jacobson says. She has written and produced documentaries, television series and specials, and appears regularly on TV and radio. Her other books include Hollywood Heartbreaks,  Hollywood Haunted and Timmy’s in the Well: The Jon Provost Story, which she co-authored with her husband, the former child actor who played Timmy in TV’s Lassie

Jacobson loves to talk about everything Hollywood, and in her popular book she covers such topics as:

Lana Turner’s involvement in a hoodlum homicide.

The impact of an arrest on Robert Mitchum’s career.

John Wayne’s “ironic” death.

The Gary Cooper mystery.

Natalie Wood’s mysterious drowning.

River Phoenix’s surprising personality change right before his death.

How Debbie Reynolds survived a major scandal.

The Frank Sinatra/Joe Di Maggio/Marilyn Monroe connection.
