Description by OLDIES.com:

Hollywood's biggest stars have all wanted to be immortalized in a caricature on the walls of The Brown Derby. This book looks back at some of the most famous caricatures to ever grace the walls of the infamous restaurant, and the stories behind them.

Product Description:

Jack Lane, the Brown Derby's resident caricaturist, has written this book which brings to life the charisma, the glamour, the happiness and the tears that made the Brown Derby a true Hollywood legend. Jack traces the "growing up" of both Hollywood and the Derby down through the years. He shares many anecdotes of the stars' antics as well as events that occurred in Hollywood and especially the Brown Derby. His caricatures of stars such as Bob Hope, George Burns, Cary Grant, Carol Burnett, Gene Autry, Lucille Ball and many other stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood are beautifully reproduced.

This is a very well-written book by Mr. Jack Lane, the actual artist who sat with the stars in the Derby and drew most of the famous caricatures from the 40's through the 80's. It's got dozens and dozens of great caricatures of the stars of the golden age of Hollywood, along with clever and humorous stories by the author about each one. Many period photographs accompany the text. It is a very readable, enjoyable, and entertaining bit of Hollywood history by the guy who was there. Highly recommended!
