Kurzbeschreibung

1. März 2006
The so-called Golden Age of Hollywood of the late 1920s through to the late 1940s, coincided with a highly flamboyant phase in the history of American design, such as Art Deco and a revival of Period Styles such as Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial. The result was a pure romantic spectacle exhibiting the 'anything is possible' ideology that embodied Hollywood. Wallace shows us the best of these buildings through 200 new colour pictures by Juergen Nogai, and through Wallace's revealing of the titillating histories of each place.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book shows a great number of outstanding historic Hollywood houses, mostly from the 20ies and 30ies. Only a few of them are "palaces". Most of them were - and are still today - beautyful houses where people feel comfortable in. Some are rather excentric, others resemble more an "upper middle class style". All of them have been restored in the last years and the new owners changed them, made rooms bigger, added pools and more modern bathrooms. Sometimes this made the houses even more beautyful. The author describes the history of the houses, their location, the architect and the interesting, sometimes very famous people who lived in, like Cary Grant, Charlie Chaplin or Cecil B. DeMille. He tells interesting stories about the houses and about their inhabitants from the past and present. And this book is full of pictures, showing all those houses from inside, outside and stunning details. It is also a good source of inspiration for people who are planning to build an unusual house or want to renovate one or who just like to do some real good interior decoration.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Bricks and Mortar Tour of Hollywood Elegantly Presented 13. März 2006
Von Ed Uyeshima - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
When Lucy and Ethel took the bus tour of the movie star homes on "I Love Lucy", you will undoubtedly recall Lucy finding herself bobbing for grapefruit at Richard Widmark's palatial estate. Now we can all see what is behind the other side of the barrier wall thanks to this elegant coffee table book compiled by fervent Hollywood historian David Wallace. With some beautiful photos and descriptive, trivia-laden text, he includes twenty-five buildings and homes that were designed and built during Hollywood's golden era.

Painstakingly restored to their original grandeur, they represent a variety of eclectic architectural styles from Art Deco to Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial. While the typical landmarks such as Graumann's Chinese Theater are here, the book is highlighted by the homes of screen legends like Carole Lombard, Gloria Swanson, Cecil B. DeMille, Chales Laughton, Cary Grant and Randolph Scott, and Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard. The furnishings within the homes are not so much lavish as surprisingly idiosyncratic and insightful to the personalities inhabiting the settings. The photographs by Juergen Nogai are often stunning and give evidence of both the creativity and decadence pervasive at the time. This is definitely a fun one to peruse.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Voyeur 27. April 2006
Von Charles R. Nauert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I loved this book. Something about the pictures... one feels like you're actually there... technically part of it is that the human eye sees inside and outside. Photographers get one of the other... but not both. In these pictures it feels like you are walking through a house... seeing it as a guest of the famous resident... and seeing it as you would if you were there in person. You can look at the room, the furniture, or out the window. There's an emotional quality that was stirred in me.

Likewise, the text is telling tidbits and gems that the famous owner might reveal to a friend... One learns things that you wouldn't dare ask. Its a great marriage between the past private and public lives of people that we all know. Though they are long in their graves, they come to life in this fascinating book.

I'd been in some of these homes. The Charles Laughton home in Palos Verdes, Portugese Bend, was a fascinating journey as a kid... walking over Peacock Flats, through the Vanderlip estate... looking for feathers, and hoping not to be caught. The fear that Quasimodo would emerge and chase us, I can still feel it. I think that going back there in the book, this was my favorite.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from cover to cover. There are so many interesting stories and tid bits about the stars of Hollywood's golden age. From the suave Cary Grant to the powerful DeMille to the comic W.C. Fields. The homes are anywhere from spectacular to homey. This book also covers some famous theaters and restaurants. I highly recommend it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fun Read! 3. März 2008
Von S. Tom Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A nice coffee table book that has wonderful photos and very interesting commentary on each house. Not only are the associations with various movie people interesting but equally good was reading how most of the houses had to be rehabilitated and what was involved. A nice book to read in short spurts.
