They were the Bundy Drive Boys: hard-drinking, brilliantly talented, world-famous men of golden-age Hollywood - John Barrymore, Errol Flynn and W.C. Fields. Heroes with Hangovers tells the uncensored and ultimately moving story of these lost-soul geniuses. The partying and antics of the Rat Pack seem tame in comparison, but beneath the boozy bravado was a devoted mutual affection. Illustrated with dozens of never-before-seen photos and illustrations, this is the sozzled side of Hollywood's great era.
