In his fifty-year career, Vaughn has made his mark in roles on stage, in film, and on television the world over.                                                                                               

A Fortunate Life reveals the details of his early years in Hollywood, when he found himself appearing as often in the gossip magazines as on screen, and follows his emergence as one of the world's biggest stars.

Vaughn warmly recalls his romances with stars like Natalie Wood, his adventures with friends like Steve McQueen and James Coburn, and insider stories about such legendary figures as Judy Garland, Charlton Heston, Oliver Reed, Elizabeth Taylor, and many more. Equally important, however, was his leading involvement in the antiwar movement of the 1960s, when he became the first actor to publicly speak out against the war in Vietnam.

With a wealth of moving, wonderfully entertaining and often jaw-dropping stories from the worlds of acting and politics, A Fortunate Life is a must-read for fans of Robert Vaughn and anyone who wants a glimpse behind the scenes of classic Hollywood.
