Hollyweird (Hollywood + weird)

"Hollyweird” (Hollywood + weird) is a portmanteau word for the city of Hollywood and its entertainment industry. “Hollyweird” has been printed on many images.

“Hollyweird” was printed in a syndicated newspaper column of Walter Winchell (1897-1972) on February 8, 1947. The “Hollyweird” term is still used.

Hellyweird (hell + weird + Hollywood) and “Hellywood” (hell + Hollywood) are similar terms.


Wikipedia: Hollywood
Hollywood is a neighborhood in the central region of Los Angeles, California, notable as the home of the U.S. film industry, including several of its historic studios. Its name has come to be a shorthand reference for the industry and the people associated with it.

Hollywood was incorporated as a municipality in 1903. It was consolidated with the city of Los Angeles in 1910 and soon thereafter, a prominent film industry emerged, eventually becoming the most recognizable film industry in the world.
