Clint Eastwood : riding high by Douglas Thompson( Book )

Thompson also interviewed those who have lived and worked with Eastwood, including his former wife, Maggie, longtime lover Sondra Locke, costar Donna Mills, and director Don Siegel, Eastwood's mentor and colleague. Their insightful perspectives reveal the complex nature of the man: ruthless yet tender, driven yet down-to-earth, affable yet aloof. Close friends share their recollections, including a hilarious story from Burt Reynolds (fired from Universal the same day as Eastwood), shrewd character observations from Marsha Mason, and matchmaking attempts by Frank Sinatra. Clint Eastwood: Riding High tells it all - his loves and hates, his heartaches, his passions and desires

The truth at last : my story by Christine Keeler( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, with the Cold War at freezing point, a beautiful nineteen-year-old girl had an affair with the Secretary of State for War, John Profumo. She also had sex with a Russian spy. When the political time bomb exploded two years later, Britain's last grandee Government, that of Harold Macmillan, collapsed. But the social legacy was even more potent than the political one. As hemlines went up in the Sixties, inhibitions came down." "Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the sexual revolution as the Pill. She was the epicenter of the social and political earthquake that shook the world, but what she can now tell with mature insight will shatter all preconceptions about her and the legendary events. The political and diplomatic ramifications and the social and sexual antics of those around her were more far-reaching than ever imagined." "Recently seen FBI documents prove what Christine has always maintained about the intimate involvement of the Kennedy White House in her case and how J. Edgar Hoover took personal charge. But above all, this is the life's journey of a woman whom history has refused to let go, who can never escape being Christine Keeler. She is a headline for ever. It is a page-turning story of her enormous personal sacrifice, her unstinting resolve and her triumphant survival."--Jacket

Stephen Ward, scapegoat : they all loved him ... but when it went wrong they killed him by Douglas Thompson( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tragic story of the persecution, trial, and death of Stephen Ward is both torturous and infamous. Now, author Douglas Thompson has traced confidants of Ward, speaking for the first time in more than half a century; along with newly-discovered government documents, he has gathered their eyewitness accounts of Downing Street intrigue, sex orgies, and dangerous liaisons. Few truly knew the rakish charmer who was the catalytic character of The Profumo Affair. A talented osteopath and artist, Stephen Ward treated, sketched, and seduced the great and often not-so-good of the post-war years. He healed Churchill and Gandhi, Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor; he drew Princess Margaret, the Duke of Edinburgh, Harold Macmillan, dukes, duchesses, maharajahs, and Christine Keeler, whose striking likeness by him hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Everyone loved the superbly well-connected Stephen Ward. But when Christine Keeler slept with two of his friends - British War Minister John Profumo and Soviet superspy Eugene Ivanov - and President Kennedy's White House went haywire, suspicion and scandal cast a shroud over Ward and his world. In the middle of a nuclear poker game, he soon had MI5 and MI6 snapping at his heels, along with the KGB, the CIA, and the FBI at his shoulder. The spooks all feared what he might know, or do. The British Establishment, keen to see Ward gone, brushed him off. Posterity is ferociously capricious, but there are still those alive who know the secrets and the true story of Stephen Ward - brilliantly told here."--Publisher description
