GÜNTHER ANDERS SERIES: Welcome to the Hollywood Costume Palace

Hollywood 1941, real war there, fake blood here. This webspace is dedicated to a remarkable exile diary and the behind the scenes work of the Hollywood Costume Palace, where movie magic is true. Come listen and see as we invite you into the Palace to explore a curious line of work: the expert crafting of props, swords, glamorous clothes and historical dress, all genuinely fake, all real on film. Framed by the nightmare of history, the “originals” made here are more real than the truth – so be warned, this factory of dreams may change what you think you know.
