The Look of Love Summary
After starting his show business career as a mind-reader in a cabaret act, Paul Raymond went on to become Britain's richest man and a modern King Midas. Realizing that sex sells, he began building his empire of gentleman's clubs, porn magazines and nude theater, provoking outrage and titillation in equal measure. Raymond's personal life was as colorful as his revues. His marriage to Jean, a nude dancer and choreographer, ended in a difficult divorce when he met Fiona, a model who became the famous pin-up star of his magazines and shows. His daughter Debbie was the true love of his life, his business partner and heir to his empire, until her tragic and untimely death aged 36. Three weeks later Raymond was named Britain's richest man and his fortune put at 1.5 billion.
