Description

.- A Hollywood icon: Beatty is one of only two people ever nominated for four Academy Awards for a single film.

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..show more
