Description

ON SCREEN THEY WERE STARS.

 “A portrait of four profoundly flawed yet awesome leading men, as well as a window into a time when glamour was sacrosanct and when stardom was achieved rather than manufactured.” —Playboy

“As the colorful anecdotes collected in this book make clear, some stars are born rather than made.”—New York Post

“Sellers’s outrageously entertaining history proves that today’s celebrities don’t have much on Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole, Richard Harris, and Oliver Reed.”—The Daily Beast

Hellraisers takes us back to the glory days of stage and screen actors Peter O’Toole, Richard Burton, Richard Harris, and Oliver Reed.”—Connecticut News

OFF SCREEN THEY WERE LEGENDS!

“So wonderfully captures the wanton belligerence of both binging and stardom you almost feel the guys themselves are telling the tales.”—GQ

“Like the rejuvenating martinis and blurry haze of cigarettes in Mad Men, Robert Sellers’s nostalgic Hellraisers . . . amounts to an unapologetic celebration of the plastered and the damned.”—The Wall Street Journal

A rowdy collection of greatest hits.”—The New York Times

“An incredibly entertaining series of anecdotes, interspersed with unpretentious and conversational interviews—all about drinking.”—Los Angeles Times

“The most outrageous film book of the season, by far.”—The Buffalo News
