The highly entertaining biography of four charismatic and much-loved actors follows them through five decades of boozing, brawling and braggadocio.
“God put me on this earth to raise sheer hell.” Richard Burton
“I was a sinner. I slugged some people. I hurt many people. And it’s true, I never looked back to see the casualties.” Richard Harris
“Booze is the most outrageous of all drugs, which is why I chose it.” Peter O’Toole
“I don’t have a drink problem. But if that was the case and doctors told me I had to stop, I’d like to think I would be brave enough to drink myself into the grave.” Oliver Reed
This is the story of four of the greatest thespian boozers who ever walked — or staggered — off a film set into a pub. It’s a story of drunken binges of near biblical proportions, parties and orgies, broken marriages, drugs, riots and wanton sexual conquests. And yet these piss-artists were seemingly immune from the law. They got away with it because of their extraordinary acting talent and because the public loved them. They were truly the last of a breed, the last of the movie hellraisers.
