Howard Hughes: The Untold Story
Howard Hughes: The Untold Story
by Peter Harry Brown, Pat H. Broeske
Howard Hughes was one of the most amazing, intriguing, and controversial figures of the twentieth century. He was the billionaire head of a giant corporation, a genius inventor, an ace pilot, a matinee-idol-handsome playboy, a major movie maker who bedded a long list of Hollywood glamour queens, a sexual sultan with a harem of teenage consorts, a political insider with intimate ties to Watergate, a Las Vegas kingpin, and ultimately a bizarre recluse whose final years and shocking death were cloaked in macabre mystery. Now he is the subject of Martin Scorsese's biopic The Aviator. Few people have been able to penetrate the wall of secrecy that enshrouded this complex man. In this fascinating, revelation-packed biography, the full story of one of the most daring, enigmatic, and reclusive power brokers America has ever known is finally told.

Howard Hughes: Power, Paranoia and Palace Intrigue
Howard Hughes: Power, Paranoia & Palace Intrigue
by Geoff Schumacher
One of the most famous and enigmatic Americans of the twentieth century, Howard Hughes challenged Hollywood's conventions and packed theaters with his blockbuster films Hell's Angels, Scarface and The Outlaw. He thrilled the world with his aviation exploits, shattering air speed records, flying around the world in record time and building the world's largest aircraft. Hughes was linked with almost every major film beauty of the 1930s and '40s, making him a favorite subject of the nation's gossip columns. One of the world's first billionaires, Hughes transformed his father's small fortune into a vast business empire.

But for all his celebrated achievements, Hughes' later years in Las Vegas -- when drug addiction, bizarre behavior and a casino buying spree dominated his days -- continue to draw the public's fascination. Geoff Schumacher, a veteran journalist and the author of Sun, Sin & Suburbia: An Essential History of Modern Las Vegas, delves into the Las Vegas years of Howard Hughes in this engrossing portrait of a man whose impact on the city is still being felt today.

The Money: The Battle for Howard Hughes's Billions
by James R. Phelan, Lewis Chester
The Money: The Battle for Howard Hughes's Billions, by James R. Phelan and Lewis Chester, who each penned earlier books on the extraordinarily eccentric tycoon, focuses on the heated competition for a piece of the notorious recluse's enormous estate following his 1976 death. In spite of his well-known predilection for control, Hughes apparently died without leaving a valid will. And despite his lifelong penchant for secrecy, his curious demise set off a string of courtroom skirmishes and corporate infighting that involved more than 1,000 people and ultimately revealed much of the bizarre behavior that continues to fascinate us.
