Book description

Merv Griffin began his career as a big band singer, moved onto a career as a romantic movie hero and eventually rewrote the rules of the entertainment industry. He interviewed everyone, from Martin Luther King Jr to Joan Crawford and brought drag queens, revolutionaries and gay activists into the mainstream. He also created the hit gameshows Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. Porter's biography - the first to be published since Griffin's death in 2007 - exposes the details behind one of the richest and most notorious media moguls in entertainment history.
