I don't want to hijack Dave's river barge thread. Been thinking about this fellow off and on all day.

And here, an interview. Mostly about film, but a bit about sailing, and life.

NO reflection on you Jack but, that last article is one sweet bit of ***artistic license***.
No mention of his role in the OSS or in the movie King of the Gypsies or his novel, one of my favourites, VOYAGE , or the causes he supported ie: a 'few bucks' for the WANDERBIRD or the erstwhile boat builder or two or three or four, he gave survival work to.
Nah, I take much of what I read in the 'popular press' with a huge grain of asprin, ya folla?

No umbrage taken, but I don't think it's intended to be complete, just an interview.

Dunno.
