Publisher Description

The Hollywood way of life has long been a potent mix of scandal, secrecy, and sensation: exactly like the Hollywood way of death....

In this unique study, Peter Underwood charts the lives, loves, and deaths of 30 of Tinseltown’s most glittering stars. Many deaths were sad or senseless; some were tragic; others were the revenge of old age, while a few were the revenge of something altogether more sinister....

The untimely, sensational deaths of legends Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are here: so too is the tragic demise of Jean Harlow, whose Christian Scientist mother banned medical help to the end. Arthur Farnsworth - Bette Davis’ husband - is included as a mysterious (not to say suspicious) death, as is the possible murder of Superman George Reeves. Others in this compelling catalog of colorful lives and different deaths include Merle Oberon, Sammy Davis Jr, Mary Pickford, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, and Groucho Marx.
