Bad Boy Drive: The Wild Lives and Fast Times of Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson

Front Cover
Preface, 2009 - Male actors - 322 pages
Sellers, in his follow-up to the acclaimed Hellraisers, traces the intertwining lives and careers of four outrageous Hollywood movie mavericks.
"I don't know what people expect when they meet me. They seem to be afraid that I'm going to piss in the potted palm and slap them on the ass." Marlon Brando
"I should have been dead ten times over. I believe in miracles. It's an absolute miracle that I'm still around." Dennis Hopper
"You only lie to two people in your life: Your girlfriend and the police." Jack Nicholson
"The best time to get married is noon. That way, if things don't work out, you haven't blown the whole day." Warren Beatty

They're the baddest bad asses Hollywood has ever seen. They are the men for whom rules did not apply, men for whom normal standards of behaviour were simply too wearisome to worry about. Bad Boy Drive is a whistle-stop tour of jaw-dropping sexual activity, misbehaviour of an Olympic standard, all-out excess and genuine madness. It's a wonder Hollywood survived.

Interesting read about 4 notorious Hollywood actors. The book needs some editing and the author needs to tone down his overly-masculine voice. The section on "Easy Rider" is definitely the highlight. Read full review
