This was an interesting story , showing the platonic friendship between two men. A subject rarely written about so I found that refreshing. On the downside it was rather lengthy and the constant repeating of full names I found irritating.
Hats off to Mr Connolly, he uniquely captures the era; the characters; the build-up; the newness and energy of the infant film industry; the excitement of success; the regret of the ever changing cast of wives; the boredom of the wind-down and the inevitable mental and physical decay, exquisitely. On top of all of that he explains, quite possibly, the only successfully known retirement of any actor in history. And not an unnecessary word in sight..
