Short Desription

As a member of Hollywood royalty - his dad was film director Roy Rowland, his uncle MGM-founder Louis B. Mayer - Steve Rowland is in an ideal position to kiss and tell about the movie legends of the 1950s, his friends and neighbours in Beverly Hills.

As an actor with credits in a dozen classic 1950s pictures and many great TV Westerns, Steve worked alongside many shimmering stars of the motion picture firmament. But he was also a teenage gossip columnist with an insider s access to all that was most hot and happening in Hollywood s golden age.

Hollywood Heat contains untold stories about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando - the kind of stories that only an insider would know. As well as movies and gossip, Steve took a keen interest in both starlets and fast cars, racing his white Corvette with friends James Dean and Steve McQueen in illegal street races on Sunset Strip.

About the Author Steve Rowland was born in Hollywood in 1939. His own movie credits include Gun Glory, The Student Prince and Battle of the Bulge. As a teenager, he dated many glamorous starlets, and wrote gossip columns for LA fanzines.

He hit the charts as a rock n roll heartthrob, then settled in Swinging Sixties London to create million-selling pop classics for Jerry Lee Lewis, Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich, and, in the 1980s, Boney M, The Cure, and Mel and Kim. As an aficionado of dangerous sports, fast cars and faster women, he may be the last of the famous international playboys.
