"Greg Bautzer was the ultimate Hollywood Insider, swashbuckling attorney, legendary dealmaker, ladies man without peer. Powerful, glamorous, fearless--he stood up to Bugsy Siegel and Joan Crawford--Bautzer made the moguls tremble and the starlets and movie queens quiver. Jim Gladstone's The Man Who Seduced Hollywood, a never-before-told story, is fascinating, startling, impeccably researched and irresistibly entertaining." —Lee Server, author of Ava Gardner: Love is Nothing
“James Gladstone breathes life into the legendary swordsman, revealing the secrets of his romances, as well his talents as a consigliere to men such as Howard Hughes, Robert Evans, and Kirk Kerkorian. Lovingly researched, thoroughly enjoyable.” —John Buntin, author of L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City
“In his time, there was no more famous a lothario or as charismatic a ladies man or power player in Hollywood than lawyer Greg Bautzer. The instant I met him I understood why: he was dashing, charming, and pulled you into his orbit before you realized you’d been snagged. James Gladstone’s biography is the first to tell his story, and it’s filled with the kind of juicy inside information about everyone from Lana Turner to Ingrid Bergman and beyond that makes for a very lively, satisfying read.” —Robert Osborne, Hollywood historian and host of Turner Classic Movies
"[Author B. James] Gladstone has told [Bautzer's] story well." —Palm Beach Post
