Recounts the shocking off-screen exploits of Hollywood's leading men, including Errol Flynn, Frank Sinatra, Rob Lowe, Charlie Chaplin, and Roman Polanski
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Those who enjoy malicious gossip about Hollywood personalities will find little satisfaction in this unforgivably sloppy effort by the author of The Hollywood Mur der Casebook (St. Martin's, 1988). Scraped together from Munn's interviews with celebrities and from unattributed sources, the text jumps with jarring randomness from anecdote to anecdote, none of which is really juicy. Who wants to hear about John Barrymore's drinking problem again? And how exactly does Matthew Broderick's involvement in a tragic car accident qualify him as a "rogue"? Fans of Hollywood dirt-dishing would be far better served by Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon I ( LJ 9/1/75) and Hollywood Babylon II ( LJ 1/85).
