HOWARD HUGHES HELL'S ANGEL 30.00EUR

Sinopsis:
Thanks in part to THE AVIATOR, the world already knows about Howard Hughes’s filming of Hell’s Angels, his links to blonde goddess Jean Harlow, his transglobal flight, his obsessive tinkering with The Outlaw, the bra he designed for Jane Russell, and the Senate investigations associated with his Spruce Goose. Many readers know about his long hair and fingernails, his drug addictions, his obsessive-compulsive disorder, and his role as America’s first billionaire. This, however, is a journey into the private and shadowy world of Howard Hughes, revealing for the first time the inside details about destructive and usually scandalous associations with other Hollywood players.
It’s an astonishing tale of outrageous fortune, unbounded ambition, and tragic greed, the signs of which were already visible during Hughes’s years as a teenager. It’s the story of a man whom most of America celebrated, at least briefly, as a genuine hero, and a man whom many of his former associates loved to vilify.
Hughes led a life of almost unprecedented debauchery, at least for his era. This biography documents that corruption and the A-list legends who collaborated. Hughes’s sexual and emotional odyssey is described frankly and even graphically, without apologies to the faint of heart. Throughout the unimaginable changes that affected America between Hughes’s birth in 1905 and the sinister circumstances of his death in 1976, this biography gives an insider’s perspective about what money can buy─and what it can’t.
Hughes emerges as the century’s greatest Lothario, with origins that included a devouring and incestuous mother, an indulgent but absent father, and seductions of the greatest all-star cast of lovers─male and female─ever assembled in a single lifetime. Hughes feverishly seduced some of the world’s greatest women, but in this epic biography, he is also dragged kicking and screaming out of the closet. As his pimp, Johnny Meyer, once said: “Bossman was an equal opportunity seducer. The gender of his victim didn’t matter. He had just one requirement: Beauty.”
Howard was involved, sometimes pivotally, in Hollywood murders whose victims included Paul Bern (Jean Harlow’s tragic husband); Thelma Todd (“Hot Toddy,”), and David Bacon, publicized as “the handsomest man in Hollywood.” There were peripheral involvements with the mysterious deaths of as many as four or five lesser luminaries as well.
Thanks in part to these revelations, the canon of Hollywood legend will never be the same. The author’s rundown on the relationship of Hughes with Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner, Bette Davis, and Katharine Hepburn challenges virtually everything that has ever been filmed or written about those famous figures.
This is an intimate, carefully authenticated account of a great but bizarre American life, often drawn from courtiers who factored in some way into Hughes’s empire. From his reckless pursuit of love as a rich teenager to his final days as a demented and decaying fossil, he tasted the best and worst of the century he occupied. Along the way, he changed the world of aviation and entertainment forever.
