Peter Biskind

Published by Simon & Schuster

In this compulsively readable and constantly surprising book, Peter Biskind, the author of the film classics Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Down and Dirty Pictures, writes the most intimate, revealing, and balanced biography ever of Hollywood legend, Warren Beatty

Famously a playboy, Beatty has also been one of the most ambitious and successful stars in Hollywood

Several Beatty films have passed the test of time, from Bonnie and Clyde to Shampoo, Heaven Can Wait, Reds (for which he won the best director Oscar), Bugsy, and Bulworth

Few filmgoers realize that along with Orson Welles, Beatty is the only person ever nominated for four Academy Awards for a single film - and unlike Welles, Beatty did it twice

Biskind shows how Beatty used star power, commercial success, savvy, and charm to bend Hollywood moguls to his will

Beatty's private life has been the subject of gossip for decades, and Star confirms his status as Hollywood's leading man in the bedroom, describing his affairs with Joan Collins, Natalie Wood, Leslie Caron and Madonna, among many others

Biskind explains how Beatty exercised unique control, often hiring screenwriters out of his own pocket, producing, directing, and acting in his own films

He was arguably one of the most successful and creative figures in Hollywood during the second half of the twentieth century, and in this fascinating biography, Warren Beatty comes to life - complete with excesses and achievements - as never before
