1 Watson, Delmar, ed.; written by Paul Arnold Delmar Watson's Goin' Hollywood 1887-1987
Hollywood CA Delmar Watson Publisher (c.1987) First Edition Softcover Very Good 
[moderate edge/corner wear; binding solid, inside clean]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) The author grew up in Hollywood -- his father was an actor, and he and his brothers were one of the best-known kid thespian clans during the Thirties and Forties. (The Watsons played four of Governor "Happy" Hopper's kids in the memorable dinner-table scene in MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, for instance.) Once his acting days had passed, Delmar took up photography and became one of the town's most prominent lensmen. Although this book does not use his photos exclusively, it does present a nice mix of on- and off-camera shots of the stars, scenes around Hollywood, etc., many of them unfamiliar, interspersed with the author's reminiscences. Sections are devoted to Mary Pickford, Mabel Normand, Tom Mix, Shirley Temple and Jackie Coogan, along with such topics as "Hollywood Families" and "Blondes."
