The most comprehensive tour of Hollywood. For any movie lover, amazing account of what Hollywood is, where to go and what to know when you're there. Perfect for those who have never been, and those who are returning after many visits. I would take this with me every time to enhance and enliven my visit! Plus, some really surprising and exciting places you may never know about otherwise!

Reading the other reviews for this book there seemed to be an older and much better edition that was published in the 80's- if that's the case this is still an interesting book. I like the aspect of seeing my local home town via the movies. So here you get the address and a short description of what took place in that particular location. It's essential you know!

I guess I would like to see the 1st edition of this book from the 80's. It's a fun read.

The first edition of this book is fabulous, but the second has edited out so many great locations for classic films in favor of television and new crap.
