Hello! You have stumbled across my blog, Lulu in Hollywood, where I write about (mostly) classic films and (sometimes) book reviews. I’ve had quite a few blogs over the years but for some reason, I could never get one to stick. Miraculously, the username luluinhollywood was available and I knew then that THIS is my home, for good. To those who are unfamiliar with classic films, Lulu in Hollywood is the name given to Louise Brooks’ autobiography. Lulu is also the name of Louise’s character in Pandora’s Box.

My name is Amanda and I am 29 years young. I am currently in college working towards my second degree in Accounting because I like to overachieve (and I actually love Accounting and find it fun despite what other people say ha!)

Here are a couple of my favorite classic films, actors, and actresses:

Actresses: Eleanor Parker, Janet Gaynor, Joan Bennett, Jean Arthur, Carole Lombard, Gene Tierney, Laura La Plante, Louise Brooks, Joan Blondell, Barbara Stanwyck, Shirley Temple
