In 1923, eight stars of the silver screen led by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks fought against the annexation of Beverly Hills, by the much larger city of Los Angeles. The Battle for Beverly Hills chronicles their successful campaign, and shows how politics in the U.S. would never be the same again. Through fantastic storytelling, Nancie Clare weaves an irresistible tale of glamour, fame, gossip, and politics.
