Hollywood Heritage


Evening @ the Barn

Anthony Slide


Acclaimed author Anthony Slide will go “inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine” with a heavily illustrated, Power Point presentation about this fascinating and indispensable chapter in journalism and popular culture.  Hear how the fan magazines dealt with gossip and innuendo and how they handled nationwide issues such as Hollywood scandals of the 1920s, World War II and the blacklist.  At the end of the program, there will be a book signing.


“For anyone who equates ‘fan magazines’ with supermarket tabloids, this book should come as a revelation.  Tony Slide has one a formidable job of research to chart the birth, rise and fall of Hollywood fan magazines in the twentieth century, their relationship to the industry they covered and the readers they served.  It’s a colorful, well-told history thats full of surprises.” – Leonard Maltin
