Hollywood Sandwiches

The Golden Years of Movie Catering

Ever wondered what was in the sandwich that Rita Hayworth was eating in scene 37 of Separate Tables? Or perhaps you want to know why Humphrey Bogart would never entertain a cheese and tomato baguette?

Well now, at last, all is revealed in Hollywood Sandwiches: The Golden Years of Movie Catering. Film historian and professional geek Andrew T Richards - author of Flan 9 From Outer Space: The Significance of Pastries in the Films of Ed Wood - scours the archives to produce a fascinating history of the sandwiches that played such a pivotal role in the early days of the American film industry.
