9780571210107: Robert Mitchum: Baby, I Don't Care

Features a bona fide tough guy with soulful eyes and a laconic style, Robert Mitchum was one of Hollywood's best-loved actors, star of such moody film noir favourites as Out of the Past, Night of the Hunter and Cape Fear, as well as enduring classics like Angel Face and Crossfire. But, as Lee Server now reveals, Mitchum was one of the few Hollywood icons whose real-life exploits were yet more compelling than his on-screen persona. A hobo in the Depression, he fell into movie acting after stints as a boxer, a beach bum and a songwriter. Despite early Hollywood successes, he was famously busted on a narcotics rap. But even prison couldn't tame Mitchum's taste for living on the wild side, and he remained an unrepentant misbehaver until the end of his days. In this biography of Robert Mitchum, Lee Server offers the definitive life story of a man who redefined cinematic cool.

About the Author:

Lee Server, since graduating from New York University Film School, has written numerous celebrated works of non-fiction around film and popular culture, including Hollywood biographies Robert Mitchum: Baby I Don't Care (2002) and, most recently, a work on Ava Gardner.

From Booklist:

Robert Mitchum was one of Hollywood's original bad boys. A notorious womanizer, boozer, and brawler who was jailed in the 1950s for possession of marijuana, which only enhanced his appeal as an outlaw and an outsider, Mitchum defined the antihero before the term had been invented. And yet, as Server makes clear in this superb biography, Mitchum was also a consummate craftsman, an actor who always hit his mark (no matter what had happened the night before) and who inspired testimonials from the likes of John Huston and Charles Laughton, who believed that Mitchum could have been the era's greatest Lear. Server tells the fascinating story of Mitchum's early life, riding the rails during the Depression, and he reprises the actor's more than 100 films, providing perceptive analysis of the remarkable number of masterpieces, from the quintessential film noir, Out of the Past, through his groundbreaking and too-little-known western, Pursued , and on to the classic Night of the Hunter , the cult favorite Thunder Road , and the stellar mainstream dramas, including Heaven Knows Mr. Allison and The Sundowners . There's plenty of fascinating insider stuff about what took place on the sets of all these films, but best of all is the way Server captures the Mitchum persona: his "gliding, pantherlike movements, his underplaying and powerful silences, his expressive quiescence," and, most of all, his "immoral face." Predictably, Mitchum had nothing but scorn for such accolades, claiming he had only two acting styles: "with and without a horse." A wonderful movie-star biography about a rebel who despised movie stars. Bill Ott
