Description

Clark Gable. Marilyn Monroe. James Dean. Mae West. Stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood are spoofed in Michael Druxman’s imaginatively comical fiction novel about Harry Pennypacker, a prolific and revered newspaper columnist and colleague of Louella Parsons, Walter Winchell, and the other great columnists of the day. Unfortunately, nobody has ever heard of him because the papers never run his articles. Editors deem his material too hot, too dangerous, and too likely to tarnish the delicate image of silver screen icons, until years later, when a small cache of the secret files of Harry Pennypacker resurface.
 
132 pages. Illustrated with photographs and caricatures (by Dave Woodman) of the stars.
 
"Always full of surprises, Druxman takes us on a wild and zany ride down a yellow brick road of filmdom myth that's fun and amusing; it's a sure bet for plenty of laughs." –actor Steve Kanaly
 
" I was mesmerized; I was astonished; I was giggling. A book that makes Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon seem like Fun with Dick and Jane.” – author Bruce Kimmel
 
"A diverting humorous satire on Tinseltown." – author James Robert Parish
