Product description


"Greg Bautzer was the ultimate Hollywood Insider, swashbuckling attorney, legendary dealmaker, ladies man without peer. Powerful, glamorous, fearless--he stood up to Bugsy Siegel and Joan Crawford--Bautzer made the moguls tremble and the starlets and movie queens quiver. Jim Gladstone's "The Man Who Seduced Hollywood", a never-before-told story, is fascinating, startling, impeccably researched and irresistibly entertaining." --Lee Server, author of" Ava Gardner: Love is Nothing"

"James Gladstone breathes life into the legendary swordsman, revealing the secrets of his romances, as well his talents as a consigliere to men such as Howard Hughes, Robert Evans, and Kirk Kerkorian. Lovingly researched, thoroughly enjoyable." --John Buntin, author of" L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City"

"In his time, there was no more famous a lothario or as charismatic a ladies man or power player in Hollywood than lawyer Greg Bautzer. The instant I met him I understood why: he was dashing, charming, and pulled you into his orbit before you realized you'd been snagged. James Gladstone's biography is the first to tell his story, and it's filled with the kind of juicy inside information about everyone from Lana Turner to Ingrid Bergman and beyond that makes for a very lively, satisfying read." --Robert Osborne, Hollywood historian and host of Turner Classic Movies

"It's been said, accurately I believe, that lawyers really run Hollywood--from papering the deals to preserving the myths of their celebrity clients. Many have tried, but few have plied that trade with the skills and panache of Tinseltown's original legal Lothario, Greg Bautzer. There's another expression: it takes one to know one--and boy does Hollywood attorney-turned-author James Gladstone know Bautzer. In "The Man Who Seduced Hollywood", Gladstone combines meticulous research with a breezy writing style that Bautzer himself would have loved. Lana, Ginger, Rita, Ava, they're all here, and they were all enthralled by Bautzer. If you miss the golden age of Hollywood--before the Kardashians, Hiltons, and Lohans usurped it--you won't put this book down, as you read about how that once glamorous world danced to the tune of Gregson Bautzer, Esq." --Gus Russo, author of "Supermob" and "The Outfit"

"As Gladstone tells it in this unusual take on Hollywood's golden age, Bautzer cultivated an image as a dashing, eligible bachelor, an image designed to gain him maximum exposure in the high-flying circles where he hoped to find clients ... In his time, he was as famous, as widely photographed, and as talked-about as many big-name celebrities. This is a very good book about a very famous man who is now, sadly, almost entirely forgotten."--"Booklist"

""T""he Man Who Seduced Hollywood" is the rare movie industry tome that combines juicy gossip with a look at the real business machinations of the dream factories in their prime."-- "Connecticut Post" online

"A fascinating new biography ... Sex, glamour and big business is revealed amusingly and intelligently in "The Man Who Seduced Hollywood"."--gossip writer Liz Smith for the "New York Social Diary"

"[Author B. James] Gladstone has told [Bautzer's] story well." --"Palm Beach Post"
