Author James Gladstone to Visit Greenwich Library on May 7
AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary will present James Gladstone on Tuesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. Gladstone used Greenwich Library for years before moving to Hollywood where he has written The Man Who Seduced Hollywood, The Life and Loves of Greg Bautzer, Tinseltown's Most Powerful Lawyer.
During the golden age of movies, Bautzer was famous for romancing leading ladies. From boardrooms to bedrooms, Bautzer dominated the Hollywood tabloids from the 1930s through 50s. But Bautzer wasn't just a Don Juan; he was also the most powerful attorney the entertainment industry has ever known, representing the richest man in the world -- Howard Hughes.
"James Gladstone's biography of the remarkable Bautzer is the first one to tell his story, and it's filled with the kind of juicy inside information about everyone from Lana Turner and Joan Crawford to Ingrid Bergman and beyond that makes for a very lively, satisfying read." --- Robert Osborne, Hollywood historian and host of Turner Classic Movies
James Gladstone is the Executive Vice President of Business and Legal affairs at Lionsgate, a leading global entertainment company. In addition to discussing the book, Gladstone will also discuss his experiences in the motion picture business over the last 28 years working for the companies that released such pictures as "Dirty Dancing", "The Blair Witch Project", "The Hunger Games", and the Mad Men" television series. He holds a BFA in film production from New York University and a law degree from Georgetown University.
