Product description


Highly readable ... exhaustively chronicled (Gerald Kaufman, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Brown and Broeske's research is staggering, and as their fine book trips through a life so wilfully beyond the pale, you don't doubt that this untold story would make a hell of a movie (EMPIRE)

Riveting from first to last, this is a tale of tragedy on a grand scale (MARIE CLAIRE)

[a] full and riveting story. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)


Howard Hughes (1905-1976), aviator, film producer, entrepreneur and famous recluse, was the most mysterious - and richest - man of the century. This work reveals the truth about Hughes' secret love affair with Katherine Hepburn; his boundless sexual appetite, where he romanced women in shifts - three or four a night; his uniqueness as the Hollywood figure who successfully enticed the three sex goddesses of the 1940s - Ava Gardner, Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth; his private harem involving more than 200 young starlets; his active participation in the Watergate scandal; and his mysterious death.
