Inside The Hollywood Fan Magazine: A History Of Star Makers, Fabricators, And Gossip Mongers
Anthony Slide's book is the first to provide a complete history of the fan magazine from its pioneering days, through the golden years, to its decline into sleaze and titillation in the 1960s and later. The book discusses the publishers, editors, and writers involved in the history of these magazines. Other topics include how the fan magazines dealt with gossip and innuendo and how they handled nationwide issues such as the Hollywood scandals of the 1920s, World War II, the Blacklist, and the death of President Kennedy. Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine features illustrations with reproductions from period magazines, popular period products, and film stars.
