Don't get too starry eyed though. Old Hollywood had its trashy moments (with the stars' personal lives) just like today. I laugh when people talk about the "good old days" as if everybody was perfectly behaved because, in reality, society had the same kind of shit going on then that it does now, it's just more out in the open now. Difference back then was that, when you were "under contract" with a studio, you had a publicity dept. to cover everything up if you were a star who got into trouble, unlike now.
