Books: Hollywood Digs: An Archeology of Shadows by Ken LaZebnik

March 28th, 2014

Hollywood digs 

A new book by our long-time friend (and often co-worker with Rosanne), Ken LaZebnik. Ken is prolific television writer and producer, writer for A Prairie Home Companion and more! This book takes Hollywood history as its subject.

“In Hollywood Digs, veteran film and television writer Ken LaZebnik unearths shards of film history that have rarely seen the light of day. Here is the romantic and tragic saga of Jock Mahoney, legendary stuntman and Hollywood’s thirteenth Tarzan; F. Scott Fitzgerald, toward the end of his life, living in a cottage on the Encino estate of film butler Edward Everett Horton; Micky Moore, who spent eighty-four years in the industry, first as a child actor with Mary Pickford and later as the fabled second-unit director of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

More than sixty duotone photographs include two large galleries by Hollywood master Leigh Wiener. They accompany the author’s deft and idiosyncratic portraits of Hollywood luminaries including Paul Newman, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Stewart, Judy Garland, Al Jolson, Milton Berle, George Burns, and Harpo Marx.

Ken LaZebnik gives readers an insider’s look at how Hollywood works, sharing his own experience of success and failure. He excavates hidden histories of the famous and near-famous. Told with wit and compassion, Hollywood Digs finds treasures amid the dust.”
