Hollywood Stories by Stephen Schochet

Stephen Schochet provides fun, anecdotes about actors and filmmakers in Hollywood Stories.

The book is broken down into 13 chapters:

Great Hollywood Comedians
Science Fiction and Horror
Oscar Tales
Great Hollywood Anecdotes
Western Vignettes
Walt Disney Stories
Moguls and Directors
Silents to "Talkies"
Television Tales
Singers and Dancers
Drinking Tales
Miscellaneous Hollywood Stories
Leading Men and Leading Ladies Lore

You'll read stories ranging from Gene Kelly performing the title song in Singing in the Rain with a fever of 103 to Johnny Depp deliberately being a pain so they would fire him from 21 Jump Street and so much more.

These stories are nice and quick. I began to wonder how much of these stories he knew about before the special features of DVDs came out because many of the stories he shared, you can find on the bonus DVDs.

Schochet is a Hollywood tour guide as well as the host of The Hollywood Minute syndicated radio show.

There are stories for everyone and there are plenty to go around. Pick this book up to engage your movie trivia pals and laugh at some of the tom-foolery that takes place in Tinsel-Town.
