"Hermann Wilhelm Göring (or Goering;[a] German pronunciation: [ø??????] ( listen); 12 January 1893 ? 15 October 1946), was a German politician, military leader, and leading member of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). A veteran of World War I as an ace fighter pilot, he was a recipient of the coveted Pour le Mérite, also known as the "Blue Max". He was the last commander of Jagdgeschwader 1, the fighter wing once led by Manfred von Richthofen, the "Red Baron". A member of the NSDAP from its early days, Göring was wounded in 1923 during the failed coup known as the Beer Hall Putsch. He became permanently addicted to morphine after being treated with the drug for his injuries. He founded the Gestapo in 1933. Göring was appointed commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force) in 1935, a position he held until the final days of World War II. By 1940 he was at the peak of his power and influence; as minister in charge of the Four Year Plan, he was responsible for much of the functioning of the German economy in the build-up to World War II. Adolf Hitler promoted him to the rank of Reichsmarschall, a rank senior to all other Wehrmacht commanders, and in 1941 Hitler designated him as his successor and deputy in all his offices. Göring's standing with Hitler was greatly reduced by 1942, with the Luftwaffe unable to fulfill its commitments and the German war effort stumbling on both fronts. Göring largely withdrew from the military and political scene and focused on the acquisition of property and artwork, much of which was confiscated from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Informed on 22 April 1945 that Hitler intended to commit suicide, Göring sent a telegram to Hitler asking to assume control of the Reich. Hitler then removed Göring from all his positions, expelled him from the party, and ordered his arrest. After World War II, Göring was convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg Trials. He was sentenced to death by hanging, but committed suicide by ingesting cyanide the night before the sentence was to be carried out."--Wikipedia

Zanuck : the rise and fall of Hollywood's last tycoon by Leonard Mosley( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and French and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Inside Flap: Darryl Zanuck-one of the most dynamic and powerful figures during Hollywood's golden years-enthralled American audiences for over five decades with his uncanny instinct for knowing what moviegoers wanted. Along with the handful of powerful moguls such as Harry Cohn, Sam Goldwyn, Louis B Mayer, and David Selznick, Zanuck is largely responsible for carving the preeminent place film has in our culture, creating Hollywood as not merely a place, but a state of mind. But it is Zanuck alone who stands out for his gifts as a consummate and instinctive cinematic genius. From his position as production head of Warner Brothers at age twenty-three, and as the founder of 20th Century-Fox, Zanuck masterminded every aspect of his films with his uncanny sense for storyline, casting, editing, and directing, never content to be merely a front office figurehead. Short, cocky, arrogant and ruthless, the very caricature of a movie tycoon with his every-present cigar, sunglasses, and starlet by his side, Zanuck was responsible for making The Jazz Singer speak, as well as for many of Hollywood's most controversial and enduring films, including The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, Pinky, Gentleman's Agreement, and The Longest Day. Strangely enough, Zanuck's is a story that has never before been fully revealed. Now, drawing on his extensive knowledge of Hollywood from his many years as film journalist, renowned biographer Leonard Mosley candidly chronicles Zanuck's turbulent, dramatic life and the effect he had on those around him. Abandoned by his mother at an early age, Zanuck spent the rest of his life in feverish conquest of women and competition with men. His legendary and inexhaustible sexual appetite made Zanuck's casting couch the most used in the business, and his compulsion to bed every starlet in his studio resulted in an eighteen-year estrangement from his patient wife and former Mack Sennett Bathing Beauty, Virginia Fox. His repeated attempts to launch his young mistresses to stardom resulted in humiliating failure. But Zanuck's egotistical nature was most felt by his three children, including his son Richard who speaks frankly in this biography of his father publicly and brutally firing him from his position as president of 20th Century-Fox. From silent films through Hollywood's heyday to the modern screen Darryl Zanuck has left an indelible mark on the history of film. Zanuck: The Rise and Fall of Hollywood's Last Tycoon brings to life an incredible American success story, the story of Hollywood as well-a story that not even Darryl Zanuck could have invented
