In 1936, a movie ticket cost 25 cents, the biggest stars were Shirley
Temple and Clark Gable, and the Hollywood studio system was near its peak.

This is the world of "The Last Tycoon," a new series starring Matt Bomer,
Kelsey Grammer, and Lily Collins, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of
the same name, about a young mogul making his way in Hollywood. A creative
perfectionist, producer Monroe Stahr (Bomer) strives to make films with
both meaning and artistic merit, a mission that often clashes with his
boss Pat Brady's (Grammer) pursuit of the bottom line.

Stahr's story takes place during what is now regarded as the Golden Age of
Hollywood. The major movie studios, including Paramount, Warner Bros., and
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, were self-contained dream factories dominated by the
moguls who ran them. Vertical integration gave studios unprecedented
control over their product, allowing them to dictate not only how films
were made, but also how they were distributed and exhibited. Each studio
had its own stable of stars under contract; MGM boasted that it had more
stars than there were in the heavens. Supporting them were armies of
directors, character actors, cameramen, make-up artists, costumers,
gaffers, carpenters, seamstresses, dialogue coaches, fencing masters, and
clapper boys—everything and everyone a studio needed to make a movie,
all under one roof.

The Last Tycoon" returns to this era, the apex of Hollywood glamour. Meet
the series' main characters and see them as they might have appeared in
sketches by the leading costume designers of the 1930s.
