The Universal Studios Hollywood will be celebrating their 100th birthday in 2012. Everybody knows the legendary film studios, but hardly anybody knows its founder: Carl Laemmle. Together with his niece, the actress Carla Laemmle, who was born in the same year as the dream factory 100 years ago, we embark on a fantastic journey through film history – featuring silent screen diva Mary Pickford, Phantom of the Opera Lon Chaney, Frankenstein Boris Karloff and Dracula Bela Lugosi. „100 Years Hollywood“ presents interviews with VIP-journalist Frances Schoenberger, with actor John Malkovich and with three time Academy Award winning composer Howard Shore and director Peter Bogdanovich. The film „100 Years Hollywood“ offers a unique view behind the scenes of the world’s most succesfull film factory.
