About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Weld, John

From Library Journal:

The subtitle here is misleading inasmuch as the book basically covers a period of about four decades, and Weld worked as a stunt man only from 1923 to 1926. The rest of the time he spent primarily as a reporter, an assistant to actor Walter Huston, and a novelist. Libraries owning Weld's Young Man in Paris ( LJ 2/1/85) will find some material transcribed verbatim from that book to this, but Weld is a skilled raconteur, and his tales of encounters with the unknown as well as the famous (James Joyce, Alexander Calder, Clark Gable, Legs Diamond, et al.) are entertaining.
