James Gladstone wrote a book about Greg Bautzer: The Man Who Seduced Hollywood. Greg Bautzer, Tinseltown's most powerful lawyer.
This is a list of a few of the Hollywood classic era actresses that Bautzer knew and dated.
Howard Hughes was able to contact Bautzer no matter where Bautzer was.
Much more interesting reading in this book. Another perspective on the Classic Era. Politics mostly left out.
