Abstract:

From acclaimed director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, son of glamorous Warner's movie star Geraldine Fitzgerald: a dreamscape memoir of his boyhood, coming-of-age, and making his way in the worlds of theater, film, and television. Lindsay-Hogg's father, an English baronet, lived in Ireland and was rarely seen. His mother, Geraldine Fitzgerald, the redheaded Irish seductress who won acclaim in Dark Victory and Wuthering Heights, spent time with Hollywood's elite--Laurence Olivier, Charles Chaplin, and Orson Welles. Lindsay-Hogg writes of his childhood in this exotic, seductive world, playing hide-and-seek with Olivia de Havilland, serving drinks to Humphrey Bogart, discussing life with Henry Miller. Then, when he was sixteen, an offhand comment by his mother, about rumors that she had had a relationship with Orson Welles and that Welles was Michael's father, opened up a whole new realm of his life. Did the legendary genius, a consistently inconsistent person in Michael's life, consider himself Michael's real father? What was the real truth?--From publisher description.
