Tony Staveacre - Wodehouse in Hollywood

In 1930 MGM shipped PG Wodehouse out West and thrust $104,000 into his hand - in return for zilch. The stories and novels that Wodehouse created out of his Hollywood experience were his satiric riposte to those that had made a dishonest man out of him. Comedy combining Wodehouse's own writing with dramatised fictional scenes by Tony Staveacre.
