Video: Book Reading: “Hollywood Digs: An Archaeology of Shadows” with author Ken LaZebnik

April 1st, 2014

Our friend, Ken LaZebnik, held a book reading and signing at Diesel Bookstore, Malibu for his latest book, Hollywood Digs: An Archaeology of Shadows. He was joined by Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, whose childhood journals led her father, Frederick Kohner, to create the book and film character Gidget.

Hollywood digs thumb

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.
