This is the first full-scale biography to definitively explore the Academy Award-winning director's personal life and sexuality in the context of his extraordinary ground-breaking career. He was the Oscar-winning director of such cinematic classics as "Meet Me in St. Louis", "An American in Paris", and "Gigi", and perhaps equally well known as the husband of Judy Garland. But to say that Vincente Minnelli's personal life and sexuality informed his films is an understatement. As Mark Griffin persuasively demonstrates, Minnelli was all the while creating nothing short of an autobiography in code. Drawing on over 100 interviews with those closest to Minnelli-including Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Angela Lansbury, Tony Curtis, George Hamilton, Stella Stevens, Farley Granger, and many more - and featuring over 70 rare, never-before-published photographs, Mark Griffin turns the spotlight on Hollywood's 'elegant director', revealing long-kept secrets that may have been at the very heart of what made Minnelli a true Hollywood genius.
