Hiding in Plain Sight

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

This book tells the complete story of the actor's career, including his secret gay life.Raymond Burr (1917-1993) was an enigma. A film noir regularly known for his villainous roles in movies like "Rear Window", he delighted millions of viewers each week with the top-rated shows "Perry Mason" and "Ironside", which ran virtually uninterrupted for 20 years.But Burr was leading a secret gay life at a time in Hollywood when such a lifestyle was akin to career suicide. He invented a tragic biography for himself in which he was mythologized as a heartbroken husband and father. There was even an invented affair with a teenage Natalie Wood, 21 years his junior. He fought for truth as Perry Mason and Robert T. Ironside, yet he couldn't admit his own deception.Burr met his partner, struggling actor Robert Benevides, on the set of Perry Mason, and they remained together for over 35 years until Burr's death. Together, they built a business empire, traveled the world, and shared their passion for orchids and fine wine - keeping the true nature of their relationship a secret from all but their closest friends - a secret revealed here for the first time in-depth.
