"When it was discovered that a famous star of the day had probably killed Taylor, a massive cover-up began - from the removal of crucial evidence to the naming of innocent people as killers - which has continued until now to protect the truth. Murder in Hollywood goes beyond the killing to unearth unknown details about the life of Taylor before his arrival in Hollywood, as well as the stories and histories buried by the crooked authorities and criminals involved in the case. The author's exclusive interviews with the culpable star, his unique possession of long-vanished police records, and the support of the present-day Los Angeles county coroner - who examined the evidence as if the murder had taken place now."

Errol Flynn : the untold story by Charles Higham( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Errol Flynn could have been tried for treason. The world-famous star could have ended his life on the hangman's noose." In this astonishing statement, best-selling author Charles Higham sums up a theme of his major new biography of the superstar. Behind the fame, the magical movie career that made Flynn a symbol of heroism adn patriotic adventure, there was hidden a horrifying secret: he was a spy for the Gestapo, working in harness with a leading SS man, Dr. Hermann F. Erben. Aided by the FBI, army and navy intelligence, and the State Department, Charles Higham has woven a spellbinding story of espionage and doublecross. He shows the industry coverup that hid Flynn's activities from an unsuspecting public. And the audacious maneuver by which Flynn used Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt's friendship and trust as an unwitting cover for his treasonable mission. Along with this amazing story, the book discloses Flynn's previously unrevealed sexual encounters with Howard Hughes and Tyrone Power, both of whom were also bisexual; and his one-night stand in New York with Truman Capote. Higham discusses Flynn's activities as international criminal; compulsive thief; committer of manslaughter; smuggler of gold, guns, and drugs. We see Flynn as a man in constant danger. While the career soared in such classics as The Adventures of Robin Hood, Captain Blood and Gentlemen Jim, the macho star was threatened by exposure, ruin, and execution. This undercurrent of suspense makes Errol Flynn: The Untold Story a true-life thriller - which comes to an unforgettable climax in the scavenger-filled streets of postwar Shanghai. -- from dust jacket

The recent death of America's most famous matriarch signals the end of an amazing era.

During her times of glory, agony and ecstasy, Rose gave birth to nine children and to an unforgettable vision of the American Dream.
