I have to say that I was disappointed for a few reasons: First: Marc Wanamaker, as owner and founder of Bison Archives, has access to some of the most interesting and detailed photographs in Hollywood history and HH ended up with so few benign photographs and then they were blurry images due to the printing style of the book. Second: the stories were told in such a simple manner with few details. There seemed to be little background research; one of us could have written similar one and two page 'stories' based on what we have watched on television. Third: having worked at a haunted studio and hotel in Hollywood there are many more interesting stories to be told than the ones that were written in HH: for instance: Lionel Barrymore still shows up at the Sunset Marquis, sleeping in beds and scaring bellboys (he lived in one of the Villas many years ago), guests' things disappearing and then reappearing days later, picture frames flying across the room while famous guests are sleeping, etc. At Raleigh Studios there are many stories, like the multiple sightings of a woman in white, flowing gowns walking around the original set of "Ramona" now the studio's cafe. Employees seeing a man and woman in period garb walking down a hallway right past them and then fading into nothing. Stage 5's many sightings, etc. There are many more stories with many more details to be told about haunted Hollywood.
It's a pretty book, and like others have written before me, it is a nice coffee table, fast-glance type of book, but definitely not one for the avid ghost/Hollywood history buff.
My wish would be for a more detailed book with lots more pictures.
If you find yourself caring for some of these stories, send a prayer for these Souls to be released, send one for them to make the choice to be free. But some of them may have gone,...already. But I learned a lot from reading the information surrounding these stories.
