9781569800928: Edd Byrnes: Kookie No More

In 1960, Edd Byrnes was receiving more fan mail each week than any actor in the history of the Warner Brothers studio, more than Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart or James Cagney at the height of their popularity. His role as the jive-talking, hair-combing "Kookie" on TV's 77 Sunset Strip made him the hottest young star in Hollywood. His recording, "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb," was a hit single on Billboard Magazine's charts. His fame spread across the globe, and only Elvis Presley could claim to be more popular. Byrnes palled around with Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas, RObert Mitchum, Natalie Wood, Michael Caine and WIlliam Holden. Some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood seduced him. Others tried. Those were wild and heady days for Edward Byrne Breitenberger, a poor kid from the streets of New York. The pinnacle that Byrnes reached was so high that his free fall into the depths of cocaine and alcohol addiction was that much more devastating. Edd Byrnes: "Kookie" No More is a wide-open tell-it-ile-it-was autobiography. Byrnes writes with wrenching candor, naming names and holding nothing back. He reveals the bad times along with the exhilarating, great times.
