Remembering Stan Lee / 'Seduction' In Old Hollywood

Karina Longworth's new book, 'Seduction,' focuses on 10 women that had relationships with Howard Hughes and the exploitation of actresses in Old Hollywood. She also reflects on the #MeToo movement and women coming forward against Harvey Weinstein: "The thing that I've come to understand from studying the 20th century of Hollywood is that these things have always happened, and they were never talked about publicly," she says. "So just the fact that we're having a conversation is completely revolutionary." Longworth's podcast, 'You Must Remember This,' is about the forgotten stories of Hollywood's first century.

Also we remember Marvel Comics writer, editor, publisher Stan Lee. He died yesterday at 95. Lee spoke with Terry Gross in 1991 about coming up with Spider-Man, inventing new sound effects for his comics, and why superheroes have colorful costumes.
