Rebel Without a Cause was one of the most talked-about movies of the 1950s. It might also have been the most jinxed. Among its stars, James Dean was soon killed in a car crash, Sal Mineo died several years later, murdered by an unknown assailant, and the beautiful Natalie Wood died mysteriously when she fell from a docked pleasure boat and drowned. This heavily illustrated book recounts these and many other tragic events that have haunted the Hollywood movie community from its early-twentieth-century beginnings to the present day. Here are accounts of the sudden, premature deaths of stars like Rudolph Valentino, Montgomery Clift, and Peter Sellers. Here too are stories about celebrities who died young because of alcohol or drug-related problems—John Belushi and Elvis Presley among many others—and of the tragic 1998 murder of comedian Phil Hartman. Car wrecks, plane crashes, and other deadly accidents sent Jayne Mansfield, Grace Kelly, and Carole Lombard, to untimely deaths, and accidents occurring during film production have taken several lives, perhaps the most dramatic being the helicopter crash that killed Vic Morrow in 1983. The tragic stories of many Hollywood personalities are told in Cut!, the definitive volume on the fleeting lives of movie celebrities, some of whom became more famous in death than they had been in life. Hundreds of photos, many in color.

Cut! is a densely illustrated compendium of Hollywood's luminaries whose lives have been touched by tragedy, either in their career or in real life. The subtitle indicates "Hollywood murders, accidents, and other tragedies.

Without being too morbid, I loved the way the deaths were categorized. Eschewing the standard timeline, breaking the book up into types of death was a stroke of genius. What really surprised me was the celebrities that I thought I knew about, but had no idea. Especially when it came to those who were popular when I was growing up. My only minor complaint was that some of the stories were barely a page in length. This is forgivable since the stories in this book are condensed for space. This was made up for by the bigger celebrities and/or mysteries receiving more pages.
The stories themselves are interesting, include some seldom seen pictures, and deliver the facts without going too far into any controversial theories. Those are left for the reader to decide.
Overall it wasn't a very deep book. I finished it in one day. But I was entertained the whole way through. It delivered on my expectations.

Cut! is a densely illustrated compendium of Hollywood's luminaries whose lives have been touched by tragedy, either in their career or in real life. The subtitle indicates "Hollywood murders, accidents, and other tragedies." The expected appear (Sharon Tate, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, William Desmond Taylor, Thelma Todd, Irving Thalberg) but there are a number of obvious stories missing. There is no Peg Entwhistle, the actress who in 1932 famously flung herself to her death from the "H" in the Hollywoodland sign. No Bob Crane, bludgeoned to death in his bed in Phoenix, Arizona, by persons unknown. No Paul Bern, shot to death in Jean Harlow's closet, perhaps by himself, perhaps by an abandoned ex-lover. As someone else pointed out, Olive Thomas, dead from ingesting bichloride of mercury in Paris, is missing; she exists only as a sentence in a page on husband Jack Pickford. Louise Brooks, whose exit from Tinseltown was of her own volition, and who died at a relatively advanced age in Rochester, NY, probably should have been included, rather than some of the little-known players who make an appearance (Ormer Locklear, for example, who died in an airplane stunt in 1920). Jon-Erik Hexum, who accidentally shot himself on the set of his TV series in the 1980s, is missing, arguably more remembered than Gloria Dickson or Dorothy Dell.

More than half the book is made up of people who died relatively young of diseases after having a Hollywood career (Lee Remick, John Garfield, Montgomery Clift), not what I would term a typical Hollywood tragedy conjured up by the title. There is a wealth of information on most celebrities, with very little I saw in the way of errors. One mistake appears twice: in two photo captions from the movie "Poltergeist," the boy in the movie (Oliver Robbins) is miscredited as Heather O'Rourke. Vic Morrow's accidental death along with two children by helicopter blade is relegated to a back section on movie-set tragedies. I am also uncertain as to why Linda Darnell, a B-movie actress, and Richard Farnsworth, a stuntman who came to acting late in life, rate two pages, while more major stars and award-winners like Betty Grable, Judy Holliday, Frank Morgan, Dick Powell, are summed up in one page. Perhaps it is due to the amount of "tragedy" in the subject's life: poor asylum inmate Frances Farmer gets two pages as well.

Also included are quite a number of obscurities, which may be is due to the book's main compilers being film professors and librarians. Who remembers Lya De Putti? Gilda Gray? Rita Johnson? Charles Ray? Mitzi Green? The average film fan has no idea who these long-lost people are, and the extent of their contribution to filmland seems slight.

The print is also exceedingly small, probably in an effort to keep the book from being encyclopedia-sized. Although, I could just be aging...

However, all that being said, it's still a nice reference book for people who love film and celebrities, keeping in mind some of it's more obvious exclusions.

This was a very interesting book. It had celebrities from the silent era to present day. The neat thing was having a short Bio on each star especially those character actors that you've seen in movies and TV but never knew their name or anything about them. It is well written and you can put the book down and start again at anytime since most Bios are one page with some being two pages. I'm really glad I got it and it's a book that I'll keep to read again. I would recommend it as a gift as well.

This is a big book with many stars, classic, silent, modern, etc. People I have never heard of like Cathy O'Donnell, Tom Tyler, and Dorothy Dell are even here. A few are missing, a few photos were labeled with the wrong people, like Heather O'Rourke, and the circumstances surrounding their deaths is rather small in some cases. If you want more details you might be disappointed, but overall a good book to have.

This book was just as I was hoping for! I love to read about actors and actresses from years ago and to find out how they met their demise. It's exactly what I love to read about. The book is fascinating, eye-opening, and very informative. Now I've had to lend it to friends who also want to see it. Thanks to Amazon for having this book available! Thanks a lot! Kay Donaldson

I've been a movie buff since the early 70's, and by now, I thought I pretty much knew it all. This book offers readable, accurate and oftentime surprising biographies of so many people. Reading it, I was blown away by how much (of what I thought to be) obscure information was packed into each page. This book is worth every penny.

I found this book well written and I learned a lot about people why back when who died before their time. The book kept me reading as I did not want to put it down. Well worth reading.
I discovered this book at a book store chain but found - of course - a much better price here on Amazon. This book is loaded with succinct but thorough write-ups of every Hollywood celebrity you can imagine who met an untimely death. Macabre but fascinating, it is also loaded to the hilt with photos.
