'Bullets' zoom through H'wood

HOLLYWOOD — Zoot-suited wise guys and red-boa’ed ladies roamed the Roosevelt Hotel Thursday for Playboy’s Prohibition Party.

Event followed the Hollywood Film Fest’s bow of producer-helmer Elaina Archer‘s docu “Bullets Over Hollywood,” skedded to preem Dec. 2 on Encore.

On-camera project commentator and goodfella Henry Hill, though absent, was the talk of the night. So how did Archer nab the mob rat? She called the publisher of his cookbook.
