Su questo libro:
At their career peaks, these four controversial actors had the whole world at their feet and lived through some of the wildest exploits Hollywood has ever seen. But all that fame had a price; Richard Burton?s liver was shot by the time he was 50, Richard Harris?s film career stalled for over a decade. Peter O?Toole?s drinking almost put him in the grave before his 43rd birthday, and Oliver Reed ended up dying prematurely.
This is the story of four of the greatest thespian boozers who ever walked ? or staggered ? off a film set into a pub. It?s a story of drunken binges of near biblical proportions, parties and orgies, broken marriages, drugs, riots and wanton sexual conquests. And yet these piss-artists were seemingly immune from the law. They got away with it because of their extraordinary acting talent and because the public loved them. They were truly the last of a breed, the last of the movie hellraisers.
L'autore: Robert Sellers is a former stand-up comedian and the author of biographies of Sting, Tom Cruise, two appreciations of the work of Sean Connery, and the definitive book on the Pythons: Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
