They personify glamour and success - celebrated actors who bring to the silver screen a sense of indiviuality and allure. The men show a reluctance to fit the Hollywood mould; gorgeous outsiders who people wanted to be. These original anti-heroes with their naturalistic approach to acting are American originals; outcasts, misfits, undeniable stars, and irresistible mavericks. The women are silver screen goddesses - leading ladies whose great charm and beauty inspires adoration, but whose lives in the spotlight sometimes caused great pain and loneliness behind closed doors. Rare candid footage, film clips, and intimate interviews with friends and colleagues illuminate the real men and women behind the facade, revealing in these eight full-length and intimate profiles their icon status both onscreen and off. Featured in this sweeping collection from BIO are Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp, Steve McQueen, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Angelina Jolie.
