During the golden age of Hollywood, secret stories happening behind the scenes were often more intriguing, and certainly darker, than anything on the silver screen. In an era of sanitized, often puritanical popular entertainment, old Hollywood scandals seeped in moral bankruptcy were fueling the creative, administrative, and financial branches of the motion picture industry. From studios hooking impressionable kids on substances to women forced into abortions to maintain their image, scandals old Hollywood covered up will certainly change the way you look at tinsel town's rose-tinted past.
In an era when studios had fixers who used money and intimidation to save the reputation of a starlet or the studio, countless scandals were covered up. Many of these secret old Hollywood scandals were swept under the rug when they happened and sealed in airtight boxes for several subsequent generations in an attempt to erase them from history, to preserve the legacy of those involved. In other cases, the public got wind; then, not soon thereafter, simply forgot they'd happened in the first place.
But as the years have passed, many of these secrets and cover-ups have been revealed, showing a darker side to the studios and stars of old Hollywood.
