Interesting history of a place and how it did and did not change as Hollywood and it’s inhabitants did. Glad that the Belushi section was minimal. Enjoyed tidbits about Groucho , Duke Ellington and e en some famed people I’d never heard of.

Levy's "The Castle on Sunset" offers a well-researched deep dive into the history of this Los Angeles land mark. The book covers all of the major changes of ownership, renovations and restorations, in addition to the colourful array of guests, and associated scandals. An interesting look at one part of the checkered history of tinsel town.

Mostly a good biography. He was very complicated but mostly a good and giving person.
