Abstract:

"Their friendship, their fame, their tragedies"--Jacket subtitle.

When the Golden Age of Hollywood was over and the 1950s dawned, the door stood open for a fresh generation of stars. Five young actors became sensations: Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Natalie Wood, Montgomery Clift and James Dean. In their different ways each epitomized the mood and ambitions of the youth of their day. Sexy, rebellious, alluring, they emerged as idols of their generation, and through their work and mutual friendship, they became intimately bound up with one another. But their lives were ultimately torn apart--in many ways by the system that created them--and only one of them, Elizabeth Taylor, lived into old age. This extensively researched book follows the dreams, struggles, achievements and anguish of these influential and perennially popular stars, during an era that witnessed the disintegration of the studio system, the advent of television, the nightmare of McCarthyism and the realism of postwar America.--From publisher description.
