Review quote

"exhaustively researched, penetrating, but compassionate"--Pop Culture Classics; Reviews of the first edition: "explores his life and death, and does it exceedingly well...a must"--Western Clippings; "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."--Frank Price (former President of Universal TV).
