Good Book On Hollywood's Golden Era's Closeted Actors
Full Service by Scotty Bowers.
''Laid Bare'' by John Gilmore.
You will evidence more than some homosexuality in this book.
Was that the Gilmore book where he talked about his early days in NYC's Times Square, meeting James Dean, and having sex with him at his apartment? Good book. Good writer.
I liked Frank Langella's Dropped Names. It's not extensively gay, but it's a good read.
R4, yes it includes that too!
Neither ''Laid Bare'' is extensively gay but it exposes incidents of homosexuality and in general the dark aspects of life of some famous actors and singers.
This bio of Cary Grant book (see link below) got a bad review, but I remember there was some juicy stuff about Grant and Howard Hughes in it. It was thought that Hughes and Katharine Hepburn were dating, but she was actually a beard for Grant and Hughes. Also it was thought that Hughes cut off all contact with old friends when he became a recluse, but apparently Grant visited him once.
The biographies of Rock Hudson and Montgomery Clift expose homosexuality a lot too.
Oops, forgive my editing mistake.
Big hug to R8.
While he gets a lot of flack around here, I still think Boze Hadleigh's books are good reads and if not 100% accurate, at least informative.
I thought Langella's book was self-serving and in some cases (Bancroft especially), unnecessarily cruel, R5.
