Let's Get Lost / Newest Photo Exhibit by Jimmy McHugh III

Jimmy McHugh's grandson, photographer Jim McHugh (Architectural Digest) has a new book and photography Exhibition titled after the iconic standard "Let's Get Lost."  The photographs depict a moody, Chandleresque Los Angeles. The works are an homage to his grandfather and Hollywood as the vintage Cinema Capitol. The songwriter and lyricist Dorothy Fields traveled there after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Many Broadway Theaters  were closing and the daring McHugh and Fields set off to  Hollywood to try their hands at writing songs for the movies!
