Book Description

Hollywood moguls, gangsters and silver screen stars have been obsessed with their homes since the inception of the movie business and the larger entertainment industry. Their self-involved and detailed needs resulted in grandiose monster-sized homes, which dotted the landscape from old Hollywood to Malibu with enclaves of celebrity shrines in Beverly Hills and Bel-Air.

About the Author

Brad Lewis is a writer whose focus has ranged from the bizarre world of celebrity doctors to detailed histories of Jewish-American development, with particular interest to the entertainment industry. He co-wrote the bestselling biography of Milton Berle, My Father, Uncle Miltie, a candid look at the irreplaceable American television icon. Hollywood's Celebrity Gangster, The Incredible Life and Times of Mickey Cohen is the only biography of the charismatic and dangerous mobster whose life was a paradigm for the intermingling of Washington, Las Vegas, the entertainment business and the mob. Great White Doctor is a scalpel thriller centered on the sordid lives and sexual habits of "celebrity doctors". The Bloomingdale Code is a well-researched page-turner about secret religious tenets, ancient medical ritual, conspiracies, and modern-day international politics. Lewis has written often about the Hollywood scene, and is no stranger to celebrities and celebrity doctors. Anonymous underworld "businessmen," often sent their lady friends for treatment in his offices. That experience with known mobsters contributed to Lewis' interest in how gangsters, Hollywood, and Washington somehow connect in the American landscape. As an actor, Lewis appeared on TV in As the World Turns, Love of Life, The Guiding Light, and trained at the prestigious H. B. Studios in Manhattan, with its founder Herbert Berghof and fabled acting teacher William Hickey. He appeared in several off and off-off Broadway productions. Lewis has advanced degrees from CUNY (Psychology) and NYU, a fellowship at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital.Retired from clinical practice, he has fought for the elimination of formaldehyde from pediatric medicaments. His research has been quoted in hundreds of professional journals. A popular talk show guest, he has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. Lewis is a native New Yorker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting overview March 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"I read this article and found it to be a very informative overview on the diverse architecture involved with the Hollywood community. I was particularly interested in how the gangsters lived among the wealthy and famous. I read the other reviews and don't have a clue as to what they could possibly have been expecting!

1.0 out of 5 stars A HIDEOUS RIP-OFF March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How do you list a book/article about Hollywood homes WITHOUT ONE SINGLE PHOTO? A disgusting misrepresentation that is becoming all too commonplace on Amazon. The flood of thin, plagiarized, non-books on here is quite disheartening. As an avid and thus far loyal customer, I am reconsidering my allegiance to Amazon. Too big, too full of charlatans and quick-buck hacks!!

Format:Kindle Edition
This is not a book but a short article with few details and no pictures. Very deceiving. Not recommended.
