Howard Hughes: The Untold Story

£9.99

Product description

"Since his death in 1976, Howard Hughes has been remembered primarily as an eccentric billionaire, compulsively secretive and strangely deluded. The grotesque details of his last years obscured the fact that he had once been America's Golden Boy, a celebrated aviator and Hollywood legend who romanced hundreds of beautiful women, including many stars. Howard Hughes: The Untold Story is the first book to unveil this compelling story in all its richness. Authors Peter Harry Brown and Pat H. Broeske have conducted more than 600 interviews - many with people who had previously remained silent - and drawn on more than 400,000 pages of newly-revealed documents to create this fascinating and surprising portrait."

Book in very good condition.
