About the author (1990)

Charles Higham is the author of many bestselling books, including Howard Hughes, a basis of The Aviator, a major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as acclaimed biographies of Katharine Hepburn, Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, and Marlene Dietrich. He received the Prix des Createurs from the Academie Francaise and was a Hollywood feature writer for the New York Times from 1970 to 1980.

Victor Saville gave Roy Moseley his chance to become a writer by allowing him to coauthor his autobiography in 1974, when Moseley was working in the theatre with Laurence Olivier. Moseley emerged as a leading show business journalist of his time in England. After the success of his first book, "My Stars and Other Friends," Moseley wrote an intimate memoir of his life with Bette Davis and the first biography of Sir Rex Harrison. He also collaborated on the definitive biographies of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Merle Oberon, and Cary Grant. Moseley has worked extensively in the United States where his books have appeared on the "New York Times "best sellers list. He presently lives and works in Los Angeles.
