Joseph P. Kennedy Presents: His Hollywood Years
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: February 2009
Duration: 17 hours 55 minutes
Beauchamp writes about the pictures Kennedy produced, the stars he made-and destroyed-and the men who did his bidding. She also writes about the Hollywood titans in his midst: William Randolph Hearst, Cecille B. DeMille, and David Sarnoff, whose collaboration with Kennedy resulted in the formation of RKO Studios. A fascinating tale of personal greed and business genius that examines not only the way Kennedy made his fortune but what he left in his path and how he forever changed the business of movie making.
"Look at that bunch of pants pressers in Hollywood making themselves millionaires. I could take the whole business from them."-Joseph P. Kennedy
