Synopsis: Set amid descriptions of the unimaginable changes that affected America between Hughes's birth in 1905 and his death in 1976, this book gives an insider's perspective about what money can buy, and what it can't. Darwin Porter's access to film industry insiders and other Hughes confidants supplied him with the resources he needed to create a portrait of Hughes that both corroborates what other Hughes biographies have divulged, and go them one better --Foreword Magazine. Thanks to this bio of Howard Hughes, we'll never be able to look at the old pinups in quite the same way again.--The Times of London. He was a millionaire while still a teenager, thanks to his father's Texas tool-bit business. He owned Hughes Aircraft, TWA, and RKO. Yet Howard Hughes remains one of the most enigmatic, oddest, and most contradictory men in public life during the 20th century. Gore Vidal said he was boring, and called him an honest-to-God American shit. But Hughes had a lot more going on than Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated 2004 film, The Aviator, depicts. Darwin Porter's new, exhaustive biography, Howard Hughes: Hell's Angel (Blood Moon Productions), reveals that he bedded not only about every female beauty in Hollywood's Golden Era, but quite a few gorgeous males too. Born to a wealthy, libertine father, and cosseted by an incestuous mother, Hughes' life revolved around three obsessions: airplanes, movies, and sex. Porter, who is in his 60s, has had a long career in journalism; he started reviewing movies for the Miami Herald as a teenager, he's written many Frommer's travel guides, and he's published a biography of everyone's favorite nonlesbian, Katharine Hepburn. I recently chatted with Porter by telephone from his New York City home. We talked all about Hughes' dazzling, sometimes puzzling life, including those boys in the back room. --Frontiers Magazine Los Angeles. Howard Hughes, Hell's Angel was nominated for best biography in Foreword Magazine's Book of The Year Awards, and it was selected for serialization in the UK by The Mail On Sunday.

From the Publisher: Howard Hughes was richer than all but a handful of other billionaires. And for a few years in Hollywood, he wielded something approaching absolute power. Darwin Porter's newest biography is a stormingly good read about the famous and occasionally demented aviator, and about WHAT and WHO money can buy. From Blood Moon Productions: Changing the way America interprets its cinematic past. Nothing else on the market, including THE AVIATOR, tells the truth, or gives even a fraction of what's well-documented within Hell's Angel. THIS BOOK WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

Book Description Blood Moon Productions, Limited, Staten Island, NY, U.S.A., 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. h/b 814 pages, condition is very good, minor edge wear to the DJ. Thanks in part to "The Aviator" the world already knows about Howard Hughes's filming of "Hells Angels", his links to blonde goddess Jean Harlow, his transglobal flight, his obsessive tinkering with "The Outlaw", the bra he designed for Jane Russell, and the Senate investigations associated with his Spruce Goose. Many readers know about his long hair and fingernails, his drug addictions, his obsessive-compulsive disorder, and his role as America's first billionaire. This however is a journey into the private and shadowy world of Howard Hughes, revealing for the first time the inside details about destructive and usually scandalous associations with other hollywood players. It's an astonishing tale of outrageous fortune, unbounded ambition, and tragic greed, the signs of which were already visible during Hughes's years as a teenager. It's the story of a man whom most of America celebrated, at least briefly, as a genuine hero, and a man whom many of his former associates loved to vilify. Hughes led a life of almost unprecedented debauchery, at least for his era. this biography documents that corruption and the A-list legends who collaborated. Hughes sexual and emotional odyssey is described frankly and even graphically, without apologies to the faint of heart. Throughout the unimaginable changes that affected America between Hughes's birth in 1905 and the sinister circumstances of his death in 1976, this biography gives an insider's perspective about what money can buy - and what it can't. Hughes emerges as the century's greatest Lothario, with origins that included a devouring and incestuous mother, an indulgent but absent father, and seductions of the greatest all-star cast of lovers - male and female - ever assembled in a single lifetime.
