Description

.

• A Hollywood icon: Beatty is one of only two people ever nominated for four Academy Awards for a single film. Orson Welles did it with Citizen Kane, but Beatty did it twice, with Heaven Can Wait and Reds. Starting with Bonnie and Clyde, he became one of the most important, influential, and successful figures in Hollywood..

• Candid, surprising, irresistible: Biskind draws on interviews with colleagues and intimates, as well as with Beatty himself, to reveal surprising information about the star’s personal and professional lives..

• Bestselling author: Peter Biskind is the author of two film bestsellers, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Down and Dirty Pictures. He provides a brilliantly informed assessment of Beatty as an actor, director, and filmmaker..
