Sex has been the common currency of Hollywood from the beginning. The early tycoons packed their epics with ravishing dancing girls and frequently used the casting couch method of employment. Hollywood has always used sex to sell, but in the early days went to great lengths to cover up the erring ways of their top stars. The screen goddesses of Hollywood could have anybody, and frequently did: from producers and directors on the way up, to money-grabbing no goods on the way down. In this title, Nigel Cawthorne lifts the lid on Hollywood sex - the wild parties, secret lovers, sordid pasts and tragic endings - and in this volume focuses in particular on Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, and Jean Harlow.
