  1. I knew him well. He got a loan on his house without assets by bringing to the bank a publication that referred to him as “one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood.” They gave him the loan, Q.E.D.

  2. I didn’t know that about him, James. How perfect. Tom may be forgotten by the general public, but not by anyone who knew him and loved him. Thank you for this piece, Mr. Kohler.
