"It is not the usual superficial adoring screen bio. I am impressed with the depth of the portrait. There is a serious psychological study in the narrative of his life. The book makes its comment on the human condition and does it without appearing to" -- Frank Price (former President of Universal TV). "Frank Price (former President of Universal TV)."
