Remembering Jean Stein, daughter of Hollywood royalty

Hosted by

Oral historian and author Jean Stein died Sunday of an apparent suicide in Manhattan. In her last book “West of Eden,” she told stories of five families who shaped LA, including her own family. Her father founded the media giant MCA in the 1920s. Stein’s works tackled the cult of celebrity, the loneliness of fame, and tensions between West Coast and East Coast ideas of success.
