Hollywood Babylon (1991)

This is a 1991 documentary on the life and books of Kenneth Anger. Anger's main claim to fame were two books, Hollywood Babylon and it's sequel, Hollywood Babylon 2. If you haven't read them I would highly recommend them. The books are about old Hollywood from the golden era and contains a lot of seedy gossip and intrigue on the lives of various celebrities. Some of the information is wrong but overall both books are good. Kenneth Anger is also a filmmaker, though usually his work is more "artsy" as well as an occultist. Toward the end of the documentary he talks about magic.
