This account will finally explain for the first time, in the uncensored words of Simpson's closest confidants and attorneys, such mysteries as the missing Louis Vuitton bag and the Bronco chase - where was Simpson going and why? What is the real reason Simpson submitted to a lie detector test and what precisely happened when he got the results? Which members of Simpson's team believed his story, which ones had doubts? Why did the defense know from the beginning that they had at least a hung jury, and why was Simpson told he was going home even before the verdict came down? Why was Simpson's reputation more important to him than whether he was convicted? How did Simpson's team stage an elaborate deception during the jury's visit to his Rockingham mansion? What did a leading forensic psychiatrist discover about O.J. during his face-to-face examination? Why was Johnnie Cochran afraid to return to Simpson's holding cell during final arguments? You've heard the speculations and rumors; now read what really happened. But American Tragedy goes far beyond such revelations, for in these pages the reader will discover who Simpson really is and why he is able to insist upon his innocence even to this day

The American dreamer( Visual )

7 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wild, unexpected success of Easy Rider ushered in what is now seen as one of the most significant turning points in film history, making pathologically rebellious Dennis Hopper an unlikely King of Hollywood for a day. Hopper’s follow-up work, The Last Movie, a deeply personal, but ultimately disastrous meditation on the meaning of cinema found Hopper drifting further and further into eccentricity. Captured by co-directors Lawrence Schiller and L.M. Kit Carson, The American Dreamer is a multi-faceted portrait of the life and mind of one of the 20th century’s great cinematic voices at the peak of his artistic and commercial success. Shifting between being an insightful document of a complex artist (considered one of the true 'enfant terribles' of Hollywood) in the midst of his creative process and a self-reflective exploration and explosion of verite filmmaking tropes. The American Dreamer is a mesmerizing journey into the private world of one of Hollywood's most hypnotic directors/stars. Fortuitously timed, fantastically made, and virtually unseen, The American Dreamer is the great '70s documentary you always wished existed

Marilyn Monroe by Norman Mailer( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TASCHEN has paired Mailer's original text (his 1973 biography Marilyn) with Bert Stern's extraordinary photographs- widely considered the most intimate ever taken of Monroe- to create a fitting tribute to the woman who, at the time of her death in 1962, was the world's most famous, a symbol of glamour and eroticism for an entire generation. But though she was feted and adored by her public, her private life was that of a little girl lost, desperate to find love and security. Mailer's Marilyn is beautiful, tragic, and complex. As Mailer reflects upon her life- from her bleak childhood through to the mysterious circumstances of her death - she emerges as a symbol of the bizarre decade during which she reigned as Hollywood's greatest female star. This book, conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailer's collaborator on five works, combines the author's masterful text with Stern's penetrating images of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Hotel, Marilyn had never allowed such unfettered access, nor had she looked so breathtakingly beautiful. Six weeks later, mysteriously, she was dead. In this bold synthesis of literary classic and legendary portrait sitting, Mailer and Stern lift the veils of confusion surrounding Monroe - the woman, the star, the sex symbol - and offer profound insight into an iconic figure whose true personality remains an enigma even today
