SECRET FILE: HOLLYWOOD 1962
U.S. film. Sex, lies and celluloid! This is a pretty good film especially considering the entire budget wouldn't cover a couple of day's worth of catering for an average movie today.

Maxwell Carter (Robert Clarke) is a Los Angeles private investigator who loses his license after being mixed up in a bar room shooting. Owing back rent on a flea infested rattrap and three grand to an impatient bookie, Max is in desperate need for immediate cash!

It just so happens that Max's bookie is friends with Nan Torr (Francine York), a beautiful but cutthroat editor of a sleazy tabloid scandal rag called "Secret File Hollywood." Nan lays out her shady plan to the boozed-out and hung-over Max. Seems all Max has to do is stand in the shadows and take some "special photos" of a successful and famous (and married) Hollywood director. And, Nan will make sure all the staging requirements are just right!

Uh oh, things don't go so well and soon there's blackmail, murder and suicide! As it turns out, Nan isn't really running the show...the real brains behind the operations belong to the mysterious "Mr. Big"—a man they've never met but who they take directions from via audio tape recorded messages.

Look for: mid-century modern, 1950s interior furnishings (dig the lamp shades!), a rock 'n' roll record gets played, the crowd starts dancing wildly...to imply debauchery! A bongo banging, beatnik dive where the hipsters snap their fingers.

Although released in 1962, you'll quickly notice that all the cars are from the 1950s. Also, more than once you'll see the boom microphone at the top of the frame above someone's head. Robert Clarke, Maralou Gray, Francine York, Sydney Mason, John Warburton, Bill White, William Justine, Carolyn Brandt, Arch Hall Sr..

Plus these bonus selections...

HOLLYWOOD HOLIDAYS 1946
U.S. short film. Great color footage! This promotional film was meant to promote tourism—it seems to highlight a bit of racism by today's standards! Look for shots of Sunset Strip, Hollywood Boulevard, Beverly Hills and everything Southern California has to offer!

JAYNE MANSFIELD – THIS IS YOUR LIFE 1960
U.S. TV show. VaVaVoom! 1950s Hollywood glamour girl Jayne Mansfield is celebrated by her family, friends and the important people in her life. She's depicted as a sweet and lovely girl with faith in the Lord (!). It would be a few more years before the release of the Wild, Wild World of Jayne Mansfield!
