A sensational, behind-the-scenes story of the motion picture business - and the people who created it. Lured by the sweet smell of money and adventure, pioneer movie-makers pushed west to speculate in the Hollywood hills. Daring men like Peter Kessler left the safety of a hardware store and made a fortune. At Kessler's side, hustlers like Johnny Edge scrambled for the top. Young and ambitions, Johnny was smart about everything but women. His weakness for actress Dulcie Warren almost destroyed him, but another woman wouldn't let him quit. This, then, is the story of a glittering empire and the men and women who sold the world a great and lasting dream.

About the Author:

Harold Robbins (1916-1997) is one of the best-selling American fiction writers of all time, ranking 5th on the World's Best-Selling Fiction Author List just behind William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. He wrote over 25 bestselling novels, sold more than 750 million copies in 42 languages, and spent over 300 weeks combined on The New York Times bestseller list. His books were adapted into 13 successful films and television series that garnered numerous OscarŽ and Golden GlobeŽ nominations starring Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, and more. Robbins' personal life was as fascinating to the public as his novels. An enthusiastic participant in the social and sexual revolution of the 1960s, Robbins cultivated a "playboy" image and maintained friendships with stars including Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Tony Bennett, and Sammy Davis, Jr., and was one of the first novelists to be prominently featured in gossip magazines, earning him the title of "The World's First Rock Star Author."
