An inside look at Greg Bautzer, 'The Man Who Seduced Hollywood'
For nearly 50 years Greg Bautzer was one of the premier entertainment attorneys in Hollywood, with a client list that included moguls Howard Hughes, Charles Bluhdorn, Darryl Zanuck and Kirk Kerkorian. He also made a name for himself handling the high-profile divorces of Ingrid Bergman, Nancy Sinatra and Rock Hudson. Movie-star handsome, he was engaged to Lana Turner and Dorothy Lamour, dated such other glamorous actresses as Ginger Rogers and Joan Crawford, and was married four times, including to actress Dana Wynter. Bautzer, who died in 1987 at 76, is now the subject of a new biography, "The Man Who Seduced Hollywood," by B. James Gladstone, executive vice president of business and legal affairs for Lionsgate Entertainment. We talked with him about the book.
