Hollywood Occult October 09 2019, 0 Comments
The Victorian era saw a rise in people's interest in spiritualism, theosophy, and secret societies. During the turn of the century people began to practice channelling, clairvoyance, Astrology, and past lives. This was due to the mixture of Eastern and Western spiritualism. This kind of thinking and interest flourished in Los Angles during the 1920s. The city attracted many occults to start their own systems of alternative spirituality. Film stars immersed themselves in the occult as many paid annual fees to astrologers.

My favorite podcast is You Must Remember This by Korina Longworth. It's a wonderfully researched storytelling podcast about the history of Twentieth Centruy Hollywood. Presenting on the Charles Manson murders, the Blacklist, dead blondes, and many more interesting stories about filmmaking. And in time for Halloween, the latest series is Bela and Boris that features the stories of 1930's horror stars Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. If you are into old scary movies, this podcast is definitely for you.
