It is precisely because he was able so artfully to reveal so much of himself in this way that he revealed almost nothing of himself under direct questioning.Richard Schickels text, combining critical analysis and a re-interpretation of all the available biographical information, masterfully maps the intersections where a great stars personal history and his screen personality met in a style as elegant, graceful and witty as the actor himself.
