Sex Lives of the Hollywood Goddesses
Prion’s internationally bestselling Sex Lives series presents lighthearted accounts of the sexual escapades of major figures in history, politics, religion, the arts, and film. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. Sex has long been the common currency of the Hollywood Dream Factory. Early movie moguls packed their epics with ravishing dancing girls and frequently used the casting couch to determine who should be rocketed to stardom. Louise Brooks and Clara Bow were both brought down by sex scandals—the latter, in a rumored liaison with the USC football team. Mary Astor’s career was ruined when explicit extracts from her diaries were read in open court, and silent star Alla Nazimova began the trend for Hollywood lesbians—Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Claudette Colbert were all members of the "Sewing Circle."
