I've been a fan of Darwin Porter for some time. His books have the flavor of a coffee shop conversation with a friend. I keep wanting to say "get outta' here" or "go on" to every tidbit of naughtiness. I especially like the honest statement by Blood Moon Productions that they are "Applying the tabloid standards of today to the Tinseltown scandals of yesterday."Was this review helpful?

I was hoping to read a comprehensive biography of a very complex man. Instead, a six hundred page trash heap fit for the National Inquirer. My fault for not reviewing the authors prior work. If you are interested in learning about Hughes accomplishments in aviation and Holleywood, forget it. If you want to read about scandelous relationships based on heresay, this book then is for you. I wish I had my 25 dollars back!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

It's a splendid overview of early Hollywood and the quirky dementia of one of the industry's most eccentric moguls. When I finished it, my first thought involved dissuading my nieces and nephews from a career in show-biz. Then, after reflection, I realized once again that in America, at least, the show goes on, with a human comedy (in this case, Howard Hughes) around every corner. This is a fantastic read, utterly absorbing, genuinely fascinating. Highly recommended.
