Tyrone Power; The Last Idol, Fred Lawrence Guiles

£29.99

Product description

Tyrone Power was as versatile in life as he was on the screen. He was several men, and during the creation of this book I have been fortunate in having the other principal, lead, in each of these lives as an active partner, coming very close at times to the point of collaboration. He was the last idol created by the vast star-making machine, Twentieth Century Fox. Coming from a family of multi-generational actors, Tyrone Power broke the proverbial mold. His on-screen charisma in the 30's and 40's propelled him to the forefront of the "must have" actors. His on-screen accomplishments were many yet he did not hesitate to enter the military when his country went to war. After the war, he continued in his career but the years took their toll. A fascinating look behind the scenes of Hollywood of the 30's and 40's and the impact of the times.

This book is a hardback edition. Some small marks on the cover and edges of pages curved slightly.
