The True Story of an American Dynasty

Ever wonder how Paris Hilton got to be rich and famous without doing anything? It all starts with her great-grandfather, family patriarch and hotel entrepreneur, Conrad Hilton. In his time he was a celebrity in his own right, rubbing elbows with the rich and famous who stayed in his luxury hotels. A high profile, though brief, marriage to Zsa Zsa Gabor really elevated his notoriety status. Coming down through the generations, due diligence to hard work and good business sense drilled into the youngsters is evident, but there's also enough legal drama and celebrity name-dropping to spice things up.
