A Visit to the HOLLYWOOD MUSEUM

We recently visited the Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles and had a wonderful time. This collection of Hollywood memorabilia is the largest in the world and allows visitors to see 100 years of TV and films. The first floor was all about Hollywood glamour days with stars such as Marilyn Monroe. There were more than 1000 black-and-white photos of that era.

The 2nd and 3rd floors offered special exhibits of favorite stars in films and television. The Dungeon (basement) was a recreation of horror movie sets. The whole museum was like diving into the movies with scenes, customs, and stars in all their three-dimensional glory.

Lots of human celebrities in this museum. But we were in California that weekend for the book launch party of our new book, ANIMAL STARS: Behind the Scenes with Your Favorite Animal Actors and American Humane Association’s 2014 Hero Dog Awards. Where were the animal stars at the Hollywood Museum?

At last, we came upon an exhibit of the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES television show. Sitting proudly on the open car seat with Jed Clampett, Elly May, Granny, Jethro, and Duke the dog who starred in the series. We could have filled an entire floor of the museum with photos from our new book. But it was nice to see at least one animal (other than King Kong and some big snakes) immortalized.

After our adventure seeing Hollywood history, we and our friends went next door to the Hollywood Cafe and had a traditional movie lunch.
