  • show Description
  • E! Mysteries and Scandals aired on the E! network from March 1998 until the Summer of 2000 and ran for 3 seasons, with a total of 128 episodes. Each episode profiles the life of a specific media figure of the earlier part of the 20th century: Famous actors, such as Spencer Tracy and Ingrid Bergman, directors/producers, (Howard Hughes, Ed Wood), notorious mobsters (Bugsy Siegel), burlesque performers (Gypsy Rose Lee), and even people that had nothing to do with the entertainment industry (Frank Lloyd Wright, Amelia Earhart). Some focused on events or places in Hollywood such as The Hollywood Blacklist, The Knickerbocker Hotel, and The Silent Theatre Murder episodes.As the title states, although they do explore the entire life of the person, all episodes focus on a specific mystery and/or scandal: From silent film stars such as Rudolph Valentino and Clara Bow, to icons of the 50’s and 60’s (Montgomery Clift, Doris Day). It may be the mysterious circumstances of one’s death. Some episodes involved a tragic career downfall, often with drug problems, mental illnesses, or even suicide. A.J. Benza was the smug, cynical host. Interviews with people involved and historians offered a very informative and often entertaining account of the events. And the reenactments always made things more interesting.moreless
