Beschreibung

Blood Moon announces the release of a triple-play bonanza whose gossip quotient surpasses that of anything else on the book market. It's an overview of THE GABORS, three unlikely but ferociously glamorous siblings who obsessively ",boot-strapped", themselves into ",television-age", celebrities who became famous merely for being famous. On the surface, at least, their stylish and glittering myths and legends represent the fulfillment of some aspect of every immigrant woman's dream. The force behind the strip-off of the sisters' diamonds, ermine, and sable is celebrity biographer Darwin Porter, who is already well known for his award-winning overviews of myth vs. reality in the Entertainment Industry. His knowledge base about the glamour queens' lives in Central Europe, prior to their assault on Hollywood, has been described as ",encyclopedic.", How were the Gabors trained, who advised them, and what were the social contexts and ",glamour quotients", which applied to their conquests of what evolved, collectively into 20 famous, attractive, and/or fabulously rich husbands? And to what degree did they compete for the attention and approval of their charming but shrewd and ",tough as nails", matriarch, Jolie? All of these questions, and more, are richly and abundantly answered in this hot new biography ",We have a tiger by the tail, thanks to the timing of this book,", said Danforth Prince, Blood Moon's president. ",Everything previously published about the Gabors has been heavy on the 'camp' factor and superficial about the historical and political contexts in which these charming ladies thrived. The Gabors themselves, through misinformation and 'artfully unspecific' references to the embarrassing aspects of their individual histories, certainly contributed to what has become a 'mink-and-diamond curtain.' All of that has changed, thanks to the investigative zeal with which Darwin Porter has pursued his craft.", ",This book will intrigue the enquiring mind of anyone who ever saw a late-night episode of Merv Griffin, Johnny Carson, or Green Acres, and anyone who ever studied the evolution of Pop Culture in the wake of the devastation of World War II,", Prince continued. ",It's a true-life tale about LOVE, DECEIT, PASSION, MANIPULATIONS, BETRAYALS, BEAUTY, WIT, GLAMOUR, and HOLLYWOOD. It's a tale about how three newcomers, fleeing toward the American Dream from the ruins of Postwar Europe, conquered Hollywood with their unique combination of Guts, Glamour, and Goulash.

Klappentext

Born in Central Europe during the twilight of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, three "vonderful vimmen"-Zsa Zsa, Eva, and Magda Gabor-transferred their glittery dreams and gold-digging ambitions to Hollywood. They supplemented America's most Imperial Age with "guts, glamour, and goulash," and reigned there as the Hungarian equivalents of Helen of Troy, Madame du Barry, and Madame de Pompadour. More effectively than any army, these Bombshells from Budapest conquered kings, dukes, and princes, always with a special passion for millionaires, as they amassed fortunes, broke hearts, and amused sophisticated voyeurs on two continents. With their wit, charm, and beauty, thanks to training inspired by the glittering traditions of the Imperial Habsburgs, they became famous for being famous. "We sold the New World high-priced goods from the Old World that it didn't need, but bought anyway," Zsa Zsa said. In time, they would collectively entrap some 20 husbands and seduce perhaps 500 other men as well, many plucked directly from the pages of Who's Who in the World. At long last, Blood Moon lifts the "mink-and-diamond" curtain on this amazing trio of blood-related sisters, whose complicated intrigues have never been fully explored before. Orson Welles asserted, "The world will never see the likes of the Gabor sisters again. From the villas of Cannes to the mansions of Bel Air, they were the centerpiece of countless boudoirs. They were also the most notorious mantraps since Eve. I can personally vouch for that."
