Storyline

Long considered a cult classic, "Mondo Hollywood" captures the underside of Hollywood by documenting a moment in time (1965-67), when an inquisitive trust in the unknown was paramount, hope for the future was tangible and life was worth living on the fringe. An interior monologue narrative approach is used throughout the film, where each principal person shown not only decided on what they wanted to be filmed doing, but also narrated their own scenes. The film opens with Gypsy Boots (the original hippie vegan - desert hopping blender salesman), and stripper Jennie Lee, working out 'Watusi-style' beneath the 'Hollywood' sign -- leading into the 'sustainable community' insight of Lewis Beach Marvin III, the S&H Green Stamp heir, who lived in a $10 a month garage while owning a mountain retreat in Malibu.

I'd heard some interesting things about this movie and considered buying it for a very inflated price. Luckily I tried YouTube and found the entire movie uncut. Maybe it's the difference in the way the world is today and all the things I've experienced but this movie was kind of boring. The awful soundtrack doesn't help either.

There's lots of scenes of women gyrating in bikinis and some topless modeling.I found the little girl modeling the topless bathing suit uncomfortable to watch. That whole scene with the little girls modeling bathing suits had a very pedophile feel to it.

I did find what Vito Paulekas said about the drug companies being the real pushers to be very true especially today where every other commercial is for some new drug. It was also interesting seeing Jay Sebring (Manson Family victim) at work in his hair salon. I have no idea where Bobby Beausoliel (Manson Family member) appeared, but his name is in the credits so it's possible I was just dozing for a few seconds and missed him.

It's worth a viewing if you're interested but do it online for free
