Fade To Black chronicles the lives and deaths of more than 1,200 movie personalities. Included are not just the big stars but a wealth of important characters from the history of film. Some achieved world fame or great power. Some were consigned to obscurity after one scandal too many. Others hid dark secrets that would only emerge after their deaths.
Amongst the names featured in this updated, enlarged edition are Marlon Brando, Bob Hope, President Ronald Reagan, Gregory Peck, Janet Leigh, Christopher Reeve plus a host of stars from the golden age of Hollywood whose work is being rediscovered on satellite television and DVDs.
For better or worse they are all here, the villains and the heroes side by side, all made equal at last by the final fade to black.
