Movie Addict HQ welcomes Susan Marg, author of Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following Their Dreams, Making It Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown. This award-winning book includes over 500 quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks by everyone’s favorite actors, directors, writers, and others involved in the business. The list is a WHO'S WHO of Hollywood history!  Film historian James Colt Harrison will co-host this special episode.

Susan's book contains many delicious surprises for movie fans. For example, how does Harrison Ford define a movie star? Why did Mel Brooks start out as a drummer? What did Sandra Bullock learn from directing a film? Why did Michael Caine want an Oscar? What did Elizabeth Taylor have in common with the critics? Listen in and find out! And that's just the tip of the show-biz iceberg in Hollywood or Bust, which won First Place in the Compilations/Anthology category at the 2013 Beach Book Festival. 

Susan Marg is also the author of Las Vegas Weddings: A Brief History, Celebrity Gossip, Everything Elvis, and the Complete Chapel Guide.
