HOLLYWOOD'S WORST BOOZERS
Today's party animals are lightweights compared to some of the rowdy, drunken stars of Hollywood's golden era.
The raucous tell-all book Hellraisers by Robert Sellers spotlights such legendary Hollywood boozers as Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole, Oliver Reed and Humphrey Bogart.
The book reveals that O'Toole's drinking almost sent him to his grave before his 43rd birthday. He drank to excess on location and was often considered too great a risk on an expensive picture. "Booze is the most outrageous of drugs, which is why I chose it," O'Toole said."
