Overview

A look at Great Britain's most celebrated Hollywood players, from Vivien Leigh and David Niven to Hugh Grant, Jude Law, Anthony Minghella, and Kate Winslet.

Sheridan Morley--author, actor, director, critic--has spent his life working among the world's greatest stars of stage and screen. In The Brits Who Conquered Hollywood, he chronicles the lives, loves, lavish parties, and rivalries of Britain's last empirebuilders. This unique account of the Dream Factory starts at the very beginning of cinematic history with Eadweard Muybridge, the inventor of moving pictures. The book follows the story right up to the current day, and every major star makes an appearance. Here too is the gossip--Hugh Grant's arrest, Catherine Zeta-Jones marriage into Hollywood royalty, and the many successes, disasters, murders, suicides, Oscars, and scandals that epitomize the British experience in Tinseltown.
