Riassunto: A look at actor Lawford's role in the affairs of John F. and Bobby Kennedy discusses his film career; his romances with the likes of Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, and Rita Hayworth; his place in the Rat Pack; and his friendship with Marilyn Monroe. Reprint.

Dall'editore: From Bobby-Sox idol to Kennedy spouse and Marylin Monroe intimate, his life was a dizzying whirl of sex, scandal, an secrets even the tabloids dared not print... Once, Peter Lawford seemed to have it all: a handsome face, a sophisticated wit, a talent that won him overnight stardom and entree into a world of beautiful, powerful people. Veteran of film roles in Easter Parade, Little Women, Good News, and The Picture of Dorian Gray, the actor had romanced screen sirens Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, and Rita Hayworth; joined Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack; become one of sex goddess Marilyn Monroe's closest confidants; and capped it off by marrying into the famed Kennedy clan. But beneath the glamour of his movie-star life, his fairy-tale marriage, and his legendary friends, lived a man beset by childhood demons that would lead him into alcohol, drugs, shocking sexual escapades--and a controversial role in the cover-up of Marilyn Monroe's death. Now, renowned biographer James Spada tells the fascinating, heartrending story of this deeply troubled man, destined to be remembered best for the secrets he took to his grave... revealed here for the first time.

"Engrossing... tells [Lawford's] frequently tragic story in well-documented detail."--Chicago Tribune.


"A compelling morality tale, largely because Lawford's life was more Dickensian than Dickens. Compulsive reading."--Los Angeles Times.

"Truly titillates."-Daily News, New York
