ABOUT UNREMEMBERED HOLLYWOOD
Everyone knows about Louis B. Mayer, Grace Kelly, and Warren Beatty. But stuck to the side of the dustbin of history are real life characters whose contributions to the silver screen are largely unknown.
Did you know the President of Hollywood was a real position? Have you ever heard of Biscuits Malone, a silent film comedian with a squeaky-clean reputation who tried like hell to prove he murdered someone? Or Darlene Abbott, a radio star whose transition to film was hindered by her lack of a face? Hosted by noted Hollywood historian Abby Larson (Annie Savage), UNREMEMBERED HOLLYWOOD is a half-hour podcast hat tells these untold stories.
Unremembered Hollywood was created by Charlie Fonville, with original music by Jonathan Dinerstein. Click here for more info on the cast.
