How are Humphrey Bogart and Diana, Princess of Wales, related? What screen floozie, descended from the Plantagenet kings, married her former stepson? Kidd, editor of Debrett's Peerage, the standard genealogical guide to the British aristocracy, answers these questions and more in this intriguing and original book. Kidd has applied his research skills to the dynasties of Hollywood to produce 41 detailed family trees. By studying these tables the complicated ties of blood and multiple marriages that link Hollywood can be clearly discerned. The accompanying text provides the stories behind many of the names. Though the focus is on the Golden Era of Douglas Fairbanks, the Barrymores, et al., their descendants still reign, as this book reveals. Hollywood fans will be fascinated.
