But in recent years, they say, the flow of visitors has grown intolerable. The once-sleepy Hollywood tour bus business has become increasingly competitive.

Khloé Kardashian Parties in Hollywood, Tweets About 'Real Love'



A dozen people were stuck for more than two hours on a roller coaster at Universal Studios Florida. The 12-person train stopped near the top of the first hill of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit around 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Universal spokesman Tom Schroder said they were finally freed around 9:30 p.m. A glitch caused the computers to go into safety mode, stopping the ride, Schroder said. The safety system did exactly what its supposed to do, he said. <br>Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/passengers-stuck-on-hollywood-rip-ride-rockit-at-universal-studios-florida/2013/10/09/4a875a26-3147-11e3-ad00-ec4c6b31cbed_story.html





Hollywood hasn't stopped indulging stars' addictions



Martinez had produced the dedication ceremony for the star near the Capitol Records building in 1988, and Wednesday marks what would have been the former Beatles 73rd birthday. "I am really, really protective of these stars," Martinez told the Daily News. "I yelled out, 'Help, we really need somebody!'" she joked Tuesday, confirming that a worker returned the star to its pristine condition Monday. "This is history. It's a historic monument and should be respected, not desecrated like that." George Stroud/Getty Images The star was defaced with markings over the weekend - just days before what would have been Lennons (pictured in 1969) 73rd birthday. Martinez, who produces the Walk of Fame ceremonies for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, said she learned about the vandalism Sunday night after a tour guide discovered the markings Saturday and alerted Beatles journalist Steve Marinucci, who in turn reached out to her. I saw it and just thought, 'What morons did this?'

Hollywood Stuntz Says He’s Not to Blame for Violent SUV Attack



For their second film together, "Vertigo" stars Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart went supernatural with 1958's "Bell, Book and Candle." Novak was the one with tricks up her sleeve in this romantic comedy, as her character, Gillian, casts a spell on Stewart's Shep Henderson, causing him to leave his fiancee and fall for her. Jack Lemmon and Ernie Kovacs also star. In a cackling contest, Witch Hazel would have everyone beat . The animated witch was often Bugs Bunny's foe, but given her jovial attitude and infectious giggle, you can't help but love her. Sixties sitcom "Bewitched" lasted long enough to introduce us to three generations of fabulous witches: supernatural housewife Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery, left), her sly mother, Endora (Agnes Moorehead), and the littlest witch in the Stephens family, Tabitha (Erin Murphy). The hijinks on "Bewitched" are classic, and we still actively wish we could pull off tricks with just a wiggle of the nose. <br>Source: http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/09/showbiz/witch-trend/index.html





John Lennon’s star on Hollywood Walk of Fame defaced by vandals



In 1992, Robert Downey Jr. confronted reporters in a Beverly Hills Hotel suite and declared that he was free of drugs. Maybe he was telling the truth at that time. Certainly, we wanted to believe him. Certainly, as well, his confident demeanour was far removed from the vacant-eyed young actor who had faced the media a few years previously.

Area Chamber of Commerce told the committee members, "rethink the regulations, rethink the cap (on how much any one production can receive) and have it set for a longer period than the few years we do now. The one thing every business needs is certainty when they invest." "Behind the glitz and glamor of the Hollywood lights, there are real people -- hard-working men and women who make the regular people into stars," said Rusty Hicks, political director, L.A. County Federation of Labor. "Keeping Californians working in California is something we can all agree on," added Hicks. Amy Lemisch, executive director of the California Film Commission, noted the $100 million in tax credits allocated each year to retain movie and TV productions is all spent in one day, with many of the eligible projects left on a waiting list or unfunded. "It's not an effective way to run an economic development program," said Lemisch. Lemish said the most lucrative form of entertainment production in terms of what it contributes to a local economy are TV series, and the California program doesn't include network series, only basic cable series. <br>Source: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/hollywood-petitions-california-legislators-more-646334
