About this title


He was the last idol created by the vast star-making machine, Twentieth Century Fox. Coming from a family of multi-generational actors, Tyrone Power broke the proverbial mold. His on-screen charisma in the 30's and 40's propelled him to the forefront of the "must have" actors. His on-screen accomplishments were many yet he did not hesitate to enter the military when his country went to war. After the war, he continued in his career but the years took their toll. A fascinating look behind the scenes of Hollywood of the 30's and 40's and the impact of the times on a great actor. 389 pages; Dust jacket is not price clipped; small micro-tears at the bottom of the spine along with a small notch in the jacket; book is very good condition with some small light stain near the middle of the front edge of the pagination; [images available upon request] B/W illustrations; index, bibliography and filmography

From Publishers Weekly:

Power had the qualities of a cinematic idol yet his potential was never fully realized. "His relentless charm, Guiles shows, was both a strength and a weakness; he captivated virtually every man and woman who crossed his path," PW observed. "What went into creating his own persona is what concerns Guiles and makes this more than a formula star bio." Photos.
