This chapter focuses on the gossip columnists of fan magazines. The most notable, most respectful, and most reliable was the pseudonymous Cal York in Photoplay. By the 1950s, York was fighting for space in the pages of Photoplay with several other gossip columnists, including Sidney Skolsky (“That’s Hollywood for You”), Edith Gwynn (“Hollywood Party Line”), Herb Stein (“What’s Hollywood Whispering About”), and Mike Connolly with a semi-gossip column titled “Impertinent Interview.”
