The name Hollywood conjures glitz and glamour, movie stars and theaters and palm tree-lined boulevards.
What started out as a single adobe hut in 1853 and then a small community, became a sprawling, densely populated neighborhood of Los Angeles over the decades, birthplace of the movie studios, home to many celebrities and synonymous with the US movie industry, showbiz and glamour. Attractions include Sunset Boulevard, the Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theater and the famous Hollywood sign, a landmark and American cultural icon. It was set up in 1923 to advertise real estate - "Hollywoodland" - but eventually left in place and changed to the famous "Hollywood."
Over 75 women have accused the former Hollywood producer of sexual misconduct and rape, some allegations dating back decades. Now Harvey Weinstein has been arrested by New York police on rape and sex abuse charges.
