Fade to Black Summary

Fade to Black: A Book of Movie Obituaries by Paul Donnelley

This second edition contains 100 new entries. In this addictive book, Paul Donnelley has chronicled the lives and deaths of more than 1,000 movie personalities. Included are not just the big stars but also a wealth of producers, directors and supporting players. Some achieved world fame and great power. Some were consigned to obscurity after one scandal too many. And quite a few hid dark secrets that would only emerge after their deaths. New entries in this edition include Jack Lemmon, Rod Steiger, Dudley Moore, Billy Wilder, John Thaw, Spike Milligan, Joan Sims, Barry Foster, Lola Ferrari, John Frankenheimer, Rosemary Clooney, Billy Fury and many more. The big names featured run from Bogart and Cagney to Sinatra to Valentino. But it is often the starlets and small-time showbiz hustlers who suffered the most tragic fates, burned out before achieving the fame and fortune they craved. For better or worse, they are all here, the villains and heroes side by side. With a foreword by Michael Winner.
