Description: Chief film critic of Variety and director of the acclaimed Visions of Light (1993), Todd McCarthy spins this love letter to tinseltown. Funded in part by the city of Los Angeles, the film charts Hollywood's rapid evolution from a sleepy town to a gleaming center of glamour in the 1950s to its slow decay during the 1970s. Pieced together from film clips, home movies, newsreel footage, and copious interviews from such figures as Charlton Heston, Robert Redford, Salma Hayek, and Steven Spielberg, this film is a sumptuously photographed, insightful look at Hollywood's legends and history.~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
