What do Boris Karloff, Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Goldie Hawn and Pamela Anderson have in common? They are all legendary entertainers who made stops in Vancouver, BC. A wonderful horde of showbiz lore has accumulated over the decades but has been jealously guarded by industry insiders. For example, Coquitlam's Steelhead Lodge, a secluded fishing retreat, was frequented by the likes of Clark Gable and Kim Novak, whose surnames grace street signs in the neighbourhood to this day. Celebrated stage and screen star Sarah Bernhardt also came for the fishing, while African-American opera singer Marian Anderson loved attending hockey games. Comedians Jack Benny and Dick Martin met their future wives in Vancouver, and swashbuckling actor Errol Flynn met his maker. Backstage Vancouver presents rarely seen photos for the first time.
