Description

'God put me on this earth to raise sheer hell' - Richard Burton. 'I was a sinner. I slugged some people. I hurt many people. And it's true, I never looked back to see the casualties' - Richard Harris. 'Booze is the most outrageous of all drugs, which is why I chose it' - Peter O'Toole. 'I don't have a drink problem. But if that was the case and doctors told me I had to stop I'd like to think I would be brave enough to drink myself into the grave' - Oliver Reed. This is the story of four of the greatest thespian boozers who ever walked - or staggered - off a film set into a pub. It's a story of drunken binges of near biblical proportions, parties and orgies, broken marriages, drugs, riots and wanton sexual conquests. They got away with it because of their extraordinary acting talent and because the public loved them. They were truly the last of a breed, the last of the movie hellraisers.
