It was one of those nights in Hollywood the kind that made gossip columnists and newspapermen and the announcers on newsreels say It was one of those nights in HollywoodThe glamour and magic of old Hollywood may be gone but Rachel Shukert s captured the spirit of the era so perfectly it s almost as if the Golden Age of film lives on in the pages of Starstruck My favorite historical fictions are those that feel like magic even though the plot of course calls for no real magic simply because everything about the subject period the mood the atmosphere the whole works comes alive as the pages fly by and Starstruck is definitely such a book Pure moviemaking magicOk I have to confess I m kind of a film buff Names like Olivia de Havilland Katherine Hepburn and of course Clark Gable mean something to me but even if theirs create the setting Starstruck goes much deeper than just a few famous name drops Sure at its core it s about three girls trying to make it big get their names in lights and the plot when you think about it isn t so much different than Lauren Conrad s book of the same name which I have read don t ask but unlike every other book about girls fame and Hollywood only this Starstruck gives the meaningful insight into a bygone era that ualifies as so much And Margaret Frobisher er Margo Sterling is the best kind of tour guide because if you want to capture the glamour tell a story about the movies well you need a character that reflects the kind of excitement and enthusiasm and energy that s at the heart of the Hollywood mythos and hers is an attitude that s absolutely infectious Whether she s excitedly pouring over the pages of the newest issue of Picture Palace experiencing firsthand the wonder of Olympus Studios that day of her first audition or even slowly piecing together the dark side behind the fame I felt like I was there at every moment and that s how historical fiction succeedsMore than that Rachel Shukert sure knows how to cast a fully immersive spell It s not just getting the setting right making sure the characters are in character or shoving the anachronisms under the doormat but it s like this book lives and breathes 1930s Hollywood I could approach the effect from many different angles whether it s the excitement the name checking of period cars and designers perfectly capturing not just the inner workings of a 1930s movie studio but the atmosphere and tone as well or even getting the politics of the day just right with characters who are clever reflections of the effects of the then rising Nazism and communism on the movies but even for those who haven t watched hours of documentaries on the subject it s easy to appreciate that Starstruck is a book that gets Hollywood s Golden Age And it s the little things Margaret s father s rant director Raoul Kurtzman s story that line about the Karps and Goldwyns and the other power players of the movie business not being allowed into the Pasadena Country Club that really sell it For a classic movie buff experiencing all of that is the funIf there is a problem it s that yeah the plot is still about three would be starlets trying to make it big in Hollywood It s overdone and Starstruck still follows the same basic pattern of a girl swept up by the glamour before she s exposed to the dark side beneath the glamour while her not uite friends and sometimes rivals deal with their own problems their stories intersecting at various points Still a few things do set Starstruck above the field Margo s story even if overdone works because hers alone is an exploration of a time most of us can only see in black and white although she desperately needs a better best friend And while Starstruck is about Margo and Gabby and Amanda the specter of Margo s missing predecessor Diana Chesterfield looms over everything and it works as a reminder that even as Margo climbs towards fame something bigger something from the nasty underbelly of Hollywood is lurking in the background waiting for that one slip upIt s easy to dismiss Starstruck as just another in a long line of entries starring a trio of would be Hollywood starlets It would also be a mistake Starstruck is really a celebration of Hollywood s Golden Age and as a fan I m a fan
