This holiday season agnès b. stores will be decorated with images taken from Kenneth Anger's infamous book Hollywood Babylon. Originally published in French in 1959, Hollywood Babylon is a collection of scandalous tales and stories from the golden age of Hollywood. Since his childhood, Anger began collecting newspaper clippings and photos surrounding the legends and the rumors. These often-untold stories, in which Anger left nothing to silence, became the basis for the book and quickly exposed Hollywood's best-kept secrets. Hollywood Babylon was banned in the US ten days after its initial release, but was republished after a decade of copyright conflicts in 1975. Hollywood Babylon II followed in 1984.
Kenneth Anger is a former child movie actor who grew up to become one of America's leading and most influential underground filmmakers. -
