Hollywood Hellraisers: The Wild Lives and Fast Times of Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty, and Jack Nicholson | [Robert Sellers]

Hollywood Hellraisers: The Wild Lives and Fast Times of Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty, and Jack Nicholson

In his follow-up to the acclaimed Hellraisers, Sellers traces the intertwining lives and careers of four outrageous Hollywood movie mavericks. They’re the baddest bad-asses Hollywood as ever seen: Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty, and Jack Nicholson. They are men to whom rules did not apply; normal standards of behavior were simply too wearisome to worry about.

Audible Editor Reviews

An early story in Hollywood Hellraisers has Marlon Brando being taken to kindergarten on a leash. Needless to say, most of this book covers the period after which Brando's leash has come off. Robert Sellers, author of a previous book on the bad boys of British moviemaking, gives gossipy, second-hand accounts of the more sordid aspects of the lives of Brando, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty, shuttling through stories of sexual conquest, rampant drug and alcohol abuse, and general bad behavior. None of the four legends were interviewed by Sellers, but as a kind of survey course in actors acting out, Hollywood Hellraisers will raise listeners eyebrows, and Jim Frangione's clear, even-handed narration provides a nice counterpoint to these salacious Hollywood tall tales.

Publisher's Summary

In his follow-up to the acclaimed Hellraisers, Sellers traces the intertwining lives and careers of four outrageous Hollywood movie mavericks.

“I don’t know what people expect when they meet me. They seem to be afraid that I’m going to piss in the potted palm and slap them on the ass.” - Marlon Brando

“I should have been dead ten times over. I believe in miracles. It’s an absolute miracle that I’m still around.” - Dennis Hopper

“You only lie to two people in your life: your girlfriend and the police.” - Jack Nicholson

“The best time to get married is noon. That way, if things don’t work out, you haven’t blown the whole day.” - Warren Beatty

They’re the baddest bad-asses Hollywood as ever seen: Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty, and Jack Nicholson. They are men to whom rules did not apply; normal standards of behavior were simply too wearisome to worry about. These are men who brawled, boozed, snorted, and screwed their way into legend - but along the way they changed acting and the way movies were made forever. Hollywood Hellraisers is a whistle-stop tour of jaw-dropping sexual activity, misbehavior of an Olympic standard, all-out excess, and genuine madness. It’s a wonder Hollywood survived.
