Don't let that tanned, handsome, charming surface fool you.
Beneath the bronzed fašade is a mischievous mind with a
wicked wit. George Hamilton doesn't miss a thing. With a
front row seat for classic Hollywood's biggest secrets and
scandals, George has the intelligence, heart, and
unflappable spirit to tell his story, and the story of
Tinseltown's heyday, with great good humor and delicious
candor -- as only he can. From Where the Boys Are to Dancing
with the Stars; from Mary Pickford to Elizabeth Taylor; from
smalltown Arkansas to the capitals of Europe -- it's all
here, and George has lived to tell and to laugh about it.
As the child of a Dartmouth-educated bandleader father and a
glamorous Southern debutante mother whose marriage crumbled
early on, George had a childhood filled with misadventures
and challenges that his mother always seemed able to turn
from tragedy to comedy. Her idea of changing the family's
fortunes involved a trip cross-country with three sons and a
poodle in a Lincoln Continental, making stops along the way
to search for husband/father number three. And she was quick
to recognize that George's potential success lay in Hollywood.
George starved nobly for his art in the late 1950s, but was
soon starring in major motion pictures directed by the likes
of Vincente Minnelli and Louis Malle. He has forgotten more
about Hollywood than most movie experts will ever know and
shares intimate and hugely entertaining stories of his
friendships with Cary Grant; Brigitte Bardot; Robert
Mitchum; Merle Oberon; Mae West; Sammy Davis, Jr.; and Judy
Garland -- not to mention Lyndon B. Johnson and Elvis's
Colonel Tom Parker as well as the King himself -- among
others. The world is Hamilton's oyster, and this ultimate
insider is ready to share it with us. So fasten your seat
belt. We'll tell you when it's safe to move about the cabin
