Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hollywood Ambitions is a fascinating study of how the cultural idea of Hollywood transformed notions of success, reputation, and celebrity in the first half of the twentieth-century."—Joanna Rapf, Quarterly Review of Film and Video

Review

“We know that Hollywood captured the imagination of Clara Bow and Ida Lupino, but Marsha Orgeron surprises us in her revelation that Wyatt Earp, Jack London, and even Gertrude Stein were caught up in the excitement. Here is a most original study of how celebrity aspiration crossed the high-low divide.” (Jane Gaines, professor of literature and English, Duke University)

“Fascinating! Marsha Orgeron expands celebrity studies far beyond conventional star histories, tracing the Hollywood sojourns of a fantastic troupe of characters seeking to leave their mark on 20th-century American culture. A must-read in cinema history and celebrity culture studies.” (Kathryn Fuller-Seeley, associate professor of communication, Georgia State University)
