“When you’re in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, ‘Damn, that was fun’.” So said Groucho Marx. So lived Kevin Hartigan.
Who? Easily the most famous man in Hollywood that you’ve never heard of.
He achieved the success people only dream about, then lost it.
He attained the power people crave, then misused it.
And he had the money people fantasize about, then squandered it.
His is the quintessential Tinsel Town cautionary tale. And it’s all true.
Among his exploits are:
-getting caught peeing on an Oscar winning Best Actress’s house; then becoming her close friend;
-persuading MGM to pull The Wizard of Oz from CBS unless the network caved to his negotiation demands;
-commandeering a t-38 fighter jet for a joy ride;
-convincing Senator Ted Kennedy to give up the rights to his brother, JFK’s, personal letters.
-outwitting Bill Cosby for the use of the Hilton yacht;
-hosting Aaron Spelling, Robert Wagner and all three Charlie’s Angels in his jail cell;
-conning the U.S. Secretary of State to pressure Warner Brothers to pick up his $5,000 bar tab;
-having a gun pulled on him one of the “SANFORD AND SON” stars;
-eluding a “hit” put on him by the L.A. mob.
