I've never read the book, but I saw the movie years ago, and it was a terrific. It was about the frustration of the depression, the frustration of wanting to be a movie star, and evil of those who manage to survive by taking advantage of others.

It's dark, but there is no crime as I remember it, but there is a lot of dishonesty.

The scene of a Jean Harlow wannabe in the shower, is one of the most heart wrenching I have ever seen--so powerful that the actress who played the lead, British playing an American, was nominated for best supporting actress.

Sorry I forgot her name, but the movie . . . damn!
