Hollywood: Your Feet Here
Not just another press release: I’ve done it, so I can vouch for it-meaning, I learned something. I work as an archivist, so I tend to cringe at the idea of Hollywood tours. With the exception of Dearly Departed, tours to me are rife with mistakes, perpetuation of misinformation, and, well, tourists. Not so with Felix of Hollywood. And it’s on foot! Who says no one walks in Hollywood? I’ve worked in and around Sunset and Vine for years and never knew that…well, I won’t spoil it for you. Here’s the dish:
At Long Last The History Of Hollywood Is At Hand…On Foot.
“…In A Place Called Hollywood: a stroll through the first 100 years of Tinseltown” offers the chance to step back into the heady, giddy and glamorous years of Hollywood on the very ground where it all happened. Hollywood historian Philip Mershon combines decades of research with natural storytelling ability in a fascinating and fun 90-minute walking tour. Participants will discover the origins of all aspects of the Entertainment Industry including film, radio, television and pop music. From Mary Pickford to Miley Cyrus – they’re all here!
For visitors and tourists, the tour offers a true insider’s look at a one-of-a-kind introduction to Hollywood. For locals the tour provides a fresh and surprising look at familiar terrain. The intimate size of each tour (generally no more than 8 guests) gives the ticket holder an exclusive and VIP feeling.
