Definitely.  He also alleges that he has seen documents, now declassified and therefore available to the public, that prove the star of Robin Hood, They Died With Their Boots On, Captain Blood and many other films was in fact a spy for the Gestapo, working together with Dr. Hermann Erben, leading SS man, and that the film industry was involved in the cover up.  And yet more - Higham also claims Flynn the Infamous Womaniser also had affairs with Howard Hughes, fellow heart throb actor Tyrone Power and Truman Capote. Manslaughter, drug running and gold smuggling are also alleged.  The declassified documents that Higham claims are not reproduced in this book - only listed.

  • In the landscape of Northern Queensland, these stories are narrated by Leverton, who calls himself a people-freak - fascinated by the hordes of misfits and drop-outs coming from the south.  There is The Fixer, who lives by himself with his verse-making and heart-break;  Willy Fourcorners, the elderly Aboriginal; the elegant Father Rassini and Sadie, who had failed in love and was forced to humility. Witty and outrageously comedic, yet the stories are touching with the sadness of self-delusion.
