The archetypal male of his era, Gable was named King of Hollywood in 1938. But as David Bret reveals, the star was not quite who he seemed. One of Gables best-kept secrets was his bisexuality. Bret recounts Gables failed marriages to women who turned a blind eye toward his affairs with actors Earl Larimore and Rod La Rocque, among other men. Bret also reveals how a pseudo-scandalous paternity suit and the actors wartime accomplishments were no more than elaborate publicity stunts created by studio chief Louis B. Mayer in order to exaggerate Gables masculinity and heroism in the public eye. With passion and accuracy, Bret uncovers the truth behind one of Hollywoods biggest stars.Biografía del autor:
