Summary
They led sometimes scandalous, oftentimes tragic, and completely fiery lives in the glitzy world of show business--and their stories shatter all the stereotypes about people from the American Midwest... Going Hollywood: Midwesterners in Movieland is the first book of its kind to chronicle the story behind the story of twelve Hollywood legends: Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy, Anne Baxter, Jean Seberg, Jane Russell, Dorothy Dandridge, Rock Hudson, Marilyn Maxwell, Jane Wyman and Louella Parsons -- all from America's Heartland. Using rare archival sources and first-hand accounts, the book provides an inside look at how being from the Midwest influenced their lives, how they emerged on the Hollywood scene, and what their legacies look like today, years after their deaths
