Description

Who would have thought that an acting career that began as a teenage star in the Annette"" series on the ""The Mickey Mouse Club,"" Walt Disney's ""Zorro,"" ""The Roy Rogers Show,"" and ""That's My Mom"" would lead to the role of confidante and assistant to Southern California crime-boss Mickey Cohen? ""King of the Sunset Strip"" is a pistol-to-the-side-of-your-head Hollywood story. Beginning with the parties, boozing, and sex and the ""good-time"" macho whoring and gambling of the mob, the story covers the action in Sunset Boulevard penthouses, Beverly Hills mansions, Brentwood estates, and across state lines to Las Vegas. Steve Stevens takes readers down the palm-lined streets of Hollywood to meet film and entertainment giants like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima, Robert Mitchum, and many more.
