The Golden (R)Age

Written and Directed by Johnny McKnight

Gossip columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons had a readership of 75 million during the Golden Age of Hollywood. They wielded power over the careers of Grace Kelly, Orson Welles, and Charlie Chaplin. Though they could create stars, they were never afraid to break them.
But were these women – pitched as bitter rivals and condemned to the history books as morally bankrupt – really holding all the cards? Or were they puppets, manipulated by an even bigger, and more corrupt media machine?

Take a spin around Tinseltown, as we revisit some of the juiciest gossip from the Hollywood of yesteryear and ask – who really held the poisonous pen?
