About this title

Synopsis:

In 1969, Harold Robbins began his "trilogy of greed" with The Inheritors, a tell-all novel about the entertainment industry. Spanning the years 1955 to 1965, and based on the lives of actual network executives and movie moguls, the novel exposes the sex, power, and politics of mass media. Steve Gaunt is working hard to build his television empire. He's a visionary and a bit of a rebel, making him a hit, both in the ratings and with beautiful women. Sam Benjamin, meanwhile, is building his career through the movies. When they join forces, the partnership has the potential to make them very wealthy and powerful. But it's a dirty business and a rogue industry, and friendships can fall in a heartbeat when money is on the line. In its initial publication, The Inheritors was a timely indictment of an industry on fire. Today, it is a fascinating look back at a time when television was just coming into its own, and how the movie industry dealt with this new threat.

About the Author:

Harold Robbins (1916?1997) is one of the bestselling American fiction writers of all time, ranking 5th on the World?s Bestselling Fiction Author List just behind William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. He wrote over 25 bestselling novels, sold more than 750 million copies in 42 languages and spent over 300 weeks combined on The New York Times bestsellers list. His books were adapted into 13 commercially successful films and also television series that garnered numerous Oscar®, Golden Globe®, and Primetime Emmy® nominations starring Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, and more. The self-proclaimed ?world?s best writer in plain English,? Robbins wrote novels that resonated with audiences due to their graphic depictions of sex, violence, power, and drugs, and the multilayered complexities of his characters, as evidenced by his bestselling novels Never Love a Stranger, The Carpetbaggers, Where Love Has Gone, and The Adventurers. He once said in an interview: ?People make their own choices every day about what they are willing to do. We don?t have the right to judge them or label them. At least walk in their shoes before you do.? Robbins? personal life was as fascinating to the public as his novels. An enthusiastic participant in the social and sexual revolution of the 1960s, Robbins cultivated a ?playboy? image and maintained friendships with stars including Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dino De Laurentiis, Robert Evans, Ringo Starr, Barbara Eden, Lena Horne, and Quincy Jones, and was one of the first novelists to be prominently featured in gossip magazines, earning him the title of ?The World?s First Rock Star Author.?
