From the Publisher:
A candid biography of Hollywood legend Warren Beatty, based in part on new interviews with colleagues and intimates, as well as Beatty himself.
In two previous books, Peter Biskind required around 500 pages (apiece) to summarize the overwhelming influence of the "New Hollywood" generation of 1970's filmmakers (EASY RIDERS, RAGING BULLS) and the momentous rise of independent films in the 1990s (DOWN AND DIRTY PICTURES). In this sanguine and salacious biography, Biskind spends more than 600 pages documenting the achievements of a single man, the screen legend and notorious ladykiller Warren Beatty. With landmark films such as BONNIE AND CLYDE, SHAMPOO, REDS, and BUGSY, Beatty certainly distinguished himself on the silver screen, but as Biskind reports, colleagues and fellow cast members are more inclined to remember him for his relentless work ethic and the obsessive control he exerted as a director and producer. Beatty's passion for cinematic perfection was matched only by his lust for his gorgeous co-stars, which led him into affairs with Natalie Wood, Julie Christie, Diane Keaton, Madonna, and his current wife Annette Bening, to name a few of his conspicuous romantic conquests. Biskind provides a comprehensive analysis of Beatty's stellar career, including perceptive examinations of all his major films, a thoughtful consideration of his political ambitions, and a frank discussion about Beatty's legacy, which is threatened by his failure to produce a Hollywood hit since 1990.


"What dims Beatty's aura of greatness, of course, are the things that make Biskind's book such a compulsive and sometimes stunningly salacious read: Beatty's unrivaled escapades as a lady killer, and his central role in some of the most ignominious and expensive flops in Hollywood history." - John McAlley 02/24/2010
