Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of glamour photographers who believe every picture of theirs is equal to 10,000 um, you know… words? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
The only thing more compelling than a Hollywood mystery might be Hollywood history.
I think my guest today, Ken LaZebnik, will agree.
He is the author of a swell new book, Hollywood Digs: An Archaeology of Shadows, that tells the tales of people we think we know about in the glamour capital of the world, but LaZebnik has found new details and anecdotes that peel back the onion a little bit more on Hollywood skeletons than we could previously.

Among my favorite stories in Hollywood Digs is that of stuntman and two-time Tarzan actor Jock Mahoney ? but not so much because of him — as to learn something about his daughter, Princess. As a fan of the Showtime dramedy, ?Shameless,? I was always intrigued by the end credit on the show: ?First Assistant Director, Princess O?Mahoney.? What an interesting name! And now, thanks to LaZebnik, I know the backstory ? which somehow includes Academy Award winning actress Sally Field.
There is also a story connecting The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald with film butler Edward Everett Horton, and much more, as well as more than 60 stunning duotone photographs capturing a number of bygone eras.
