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."
Marvel's superhero saga "Avengers: Endgame" has pushed passed James Cameron's "Avatar" to become the highest-earning movie of all time. If accounting for inflation, however, "Gone with the Wind" still holds the crown.
The Czech Republic's premiere social and cultural event of the year is the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It's currently underway and providing the Hollywood glamour this year was the Oscar-winning star Julianne Moore, who was presented with a lifetime achievement award. Rob Cameron was on the red carpet and has this report.
