pronunciation of 好莱坞 (Hollywood) ?

Posted by jkdfj March 18, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

Is the last character in 坞(Hollywood) supposed to be read 1st tone or 4th ? Some dictionaries show one and some show the other. 

The reason I want want to ask about this one is, the character
坞(wu) only has one reading in all of the dictionaries I've checked, which is wù, but somehow some dictionaries are showing it Hollywood as hǎoláiwū. 

Can anyone explain this phenomenon?
