This is a self-portrait, in selective memory, of a man who has led many lives, all of them full of risk, accomplishment and above all, humanity. There is David Brown of Zanuck/Brown, there is David Brown, a raconteur extraordinaire with astonishing stories about his encoutners with the famous and notorious and the all-powerful - including Mafia chieftains, presidents, the reclusive Howard Hughes, the super-rich J. Paul Getty, William Randoph Hearst, and the one-of-a-kind Marilyn Monroe, Robert Kennedy....the list goes on and on and on.

There is David Brown, journalist, author, film mogul, veteran of the corporate jungle, and - yes - one-time astrologer. The husband, and intellectual companion to Helen Gurley (Brown).
