Hollywood: Did You Know?

#ad
Royle Publishing #ad - Welcome to this my tenth book. I am currently researching a second volume along similar lines. For elderly readers i should point out that there is a considerable amount of ‘bad language’ herein, simply because I quote actors and actresses verbatim. I make no apology for this, however, for i think it is important to present these individuals as they really were, minus the studio hype that tended to elevate them to the status of flawless gods and godesses.

. Having said that, would test the resolve of most of us, I believe that the temptations ever present for these men and women who were suddenly faced with enormous wealth and universal adoration, saints and all. I still get the occasional brickbat along those lines even today, but times have changed. Over the past 20 years or so, hundreds of books have been published about the ‘good old days’ of the studio system; not only stars’ biographies, but accounts from a diverse range of previously unheard from sources.

Maids, bodyguards, bell-hops, agents, family members and acquaintances of the rich and famous etc, secretaries, now put their memories into print, chauffeurs, confirming much of what I have been writing about for almost a decade and a half. Of course, there are still those who rail against anyone who deigns to question the ‘snow-jobs’ churned out by studio publicity departments down the decades; the standard complaint being the usual one – the dead cannot defend themselves.

Hollywood: Did You Know? #ad - Very few lived up to their glowing reputations, I’m afraid. I have utilised anecdotes and comments from scores of biographies authorised and unauthorised, magazine articles, as well as Internet sources, interviews and TV appearances. If, you are fascinated by the world of movies, like me, particularly the days of the studio system, I think you shall find more than enough items here to satisfy your curiosity.

Hollywood The Skeletons Are Out!: Over 1,200 direct quotes by actors and directors about themselves, their colleagues and their films

#ad - I hope she never succeeds, but one wonders if she is any good at anything. Barkin, ellenellen boasted of having an affair with George Clooney: ‘Yes, I have fucked George Clooney. I’m very proud of it, actually. Eddie sutherland, my husband, gave absolutely the best parties in Hollywood. Like a python that swallows prey much larger than itself.

Bow, clara louise brooks’ husband considered Clara to be beneath them: ‘She wasn’t acceptable socially. She also tries to kill herself every few years, without success. She bent over once to fix her stockings and he instantly leapt up to pinch her behind. Beatty, warrencher slept with him when she was a teenager: ‘Warren has probably been with everybody I know, and unfortunately I am one of them.

Hollywood The Skeletons Are Out!: Over 1,200 direct quotes by actors and directors about themselves, their colleagues and their films #ad - So i asked him one day to invite clara Bow and he said, ‘Oh, good heavens, no! We can’t have her. Or at least try. She’s from Brooklyn. Boyd, stephen brigitte bardot once asked him to marry her: ‘I don’t know if she was joking, but I said no. You think i want to play it standing on a box? I’ll show the world what a big horse you are!’ I never had a complex about my height after that.

After steve mcqueen up-staged him one too many times during the filming of ‘the Magnificent 7’ in 1960, Brynner issued him a warning: ‘If you don’t stop that I’m going to take off my hat, and then no-one will look at you for the rest of the film.

Affairs To Remember Volume 1: The Private Lives Of 100 Movie Actresses

#ad
Royle Publishing #ad - There are a few current stars in this first volume – Jennifer Aniston, Monica Bellucci, Annette Bening, Halle Berry, Saffron Burrows, Jodie Foster etc. In the movie world we have been faced with the extra problem of being deliberately misled by studios bent on presenting their biggest money-earners in the most favorable light, and that often meant blatantly falsifying information on a grand scale.

This book is my twelfth and is the first of probably four volumes that will be looking at the private lives of the better-known actresses of Hollywood history. Admittedly, some writers take liberties with the truth once their subjects have shuffled off this mortal coil, but most memoirs have a ring of truth about them that studio handouts never had.

Affairs To Remember Volume 1: The Private Lives Of 100 Movie Actresses #ad - And there are some silent era actresses as well – theda Bara, Louise Brooks, Clara Bow, Marion Davies and Billie Dove – but the vast majority are performers who operated from the thirties to the eighties. My books are basically for those readers who share my fascination for the era of the big studios and the decades immediately following their demise.

Not every big female star was promiscuous, of course, but an awful lot were. However, at various times one must weigh and assess information and make an evaluation. Hopefully, this volume and those to come will also help keep that record straight. Alan Royle. This, combined with long periods of time away from home on location, brings the possibility of romance and infidelity into play.
