Cary Grant : the lonely heart by Charles Higham( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cary Grant is one of a handful of actors whose personalities so captivate the moviegoing public that their names become synonymous with the qualities they embody on the screen. Cary Grant = the personification of elegance, wit, and sophistication. A master of light comic acting, seemingly effortless performances earned him a place among Hollywood's most popular male stars. In this biography the authors paint a very different picture--a man who could be debonair, generous and loving-as well as alcoholic, brutally abusive to women and sexually conflicted. All the familiar information is here: born Archibald Leach, Grant remodeled himself from a poor boy in Bristol into a standard of glossy sophistication; he first performed with a troupe of touring acrobatic comedians; he experimented with LSD, and he married five times. There are a few previously unreported tidbits: he beat various girlfriends and wives; he was gifted with a great business sense and invested in a talent agency, thereby secretly becoming his own agent and representing Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo without their knowing it. But it appears that the primary focus of the book is to ''prove'' Grant's bisexuality, which had been rumored since his early Hollywood days, but which Grant always denied

Rex Harrison : a biography by Roy Moseley( Book )

26 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography is a hypnotic plunge into the heart of a towering egocentrist. Harrison absorbed the rudeness and misogyny of Henry Higgins so completely that it seems all his earlier roles were way stations on the ascent to that summit. Harrison was a smash as Caesar in Cleopatra, giving a marvelously sincere reading of all the best lines in the picture. We recall him fondly as the drumbeating Salvationist in Major Barbara, the brittle hero bedeviled by his wife's ghost in Blithe Spirit, the jealousy-maddened orchestra conductor in Preston Sturges' Unfaithfully Yours, and for the weight he brought to his role as the King in Anna and the King of Siam. His stage triumphs have included T.S. Eliot's The Cocktail Party, Shaw's Heartbreak House, Chekhov's Platonov and Pirandello's The Emperor Henri IV. This book follows Rex's career both as an actor and wife-chewer. He is a terrible snob, an actor renowned for his rudeness and need for absolute attention on the stage. The authors see Harrison on a par with Gielgud and Olivier, but what Harrison does best, the bravura wit and pouring charm, he does better than anyone else alive

"With Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Balcon, and Herbert Wilcox, Saville was a cornerstone of the early British film industry. Evergreen takes the reader behind the scenes of film's golden age to reveal the tensions and power plays involved in studio filmmaking and struggles with stars, studios, and, many times, film censors, as well as the intricacies of early production, direction, and distribution methods."--Jacket

DAMN YOU, SCARLETT O'HARA by Darwin Porter( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tempestuous, scandalous love affair of the 20th century's Romeo and Juliet was second in fame and notoriety only to that of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and by many accounts, even more corrupt. Even though the spotlight shone on this famous pair throughout most of their tabloid-fueled careers, much of what went on behind the velvet curtain remained hidden from view until the publication of this ground-breaking biography. For the first time, the sexual excesses and interpersonal anguish of this "impossibly famous" team of actors are exposed in graphic, sometimes wrenching detail
