Hollywood Stories
By Stephen Schochet
Hardcover, 312 pages ($24.95)

Movie buffs will find hours of browsing entertainment in this collection of little-known Tinseltown anecdotes. The author, a Hollywood tour guide, spills the beans on Walt Disney’s most unusual autograph request, Marlon Brando’s refusal to learn his lines, Lionel Barrymore’s terrible temper, Dustin Hoffman’s brief career as a department-store salesman and hundreds of other endlessly fascinating true tales.
