Summary
ABorn in Central Europe during the twilight of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, three "vonderful vimmen"--Zsa Zsa, Eva, and Magda Gabor--transferred their glittery dreams and gold-digging ambitions to Hollywood. They supplemented America's most Imperial Age with "guts, glamour, and goulash, "and reigned there as the Hungarian equivalents of Helen of Troy, Madame du Barry, and Madame de Pompadour. More effectively than any army, these Bombshells from Budapest conquered kings, dukes, and princes, always with a special passion for millionaires, as they amassed fortunes, broke hearts, and amused sophisticated voyeurs on two continents. With their wit, charm, and beauty, thanks to training inspired by the glittering traditions of the Imperial Habsburgs, they became famous for being famous. "We sold the New World high-priced goods from the Old World that it didn't need, but bought anyway, "Zsa Zsa said. In time, they would collectively entrap some 20 husbands and seduce perhaps 500 other men as well, many plucked directly from the pages of Who's Who in the World. At long last, Blood Moon lifts the "mink-and-diamond "curtain on this amazing trio of blood-related sisters, whose complicated intrigues have never been fully explored before. Orson Welles asserted, "The world will never see the likes of the Gabor sisters again. From the villas of Cannes to the mansions of Bel Air, they were the centerpiece of countless boudoirs. They were also the most notorious mantraps since Eve. I can personally vouch for that."
