Weid, Author, John Weld, Author Mission Publishing Company $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-9625696-1-6
Now 86, Weld has held a variety of jobs including vaudeville entertainer, movie stuntman, reporter, novelist, press agent and film producer. The list of famous people he has known as he has moved from Tinseltown to Paris in the '20s, thence to New York, Detroit and back to the West Coast ranges from Franklin Roosevelt to James Joyce, Alexander Calder, Clark Gable, Louella Parsons, Maxwell Perkins and Legs Diamond. He has had an eventful life, and here in his ninth book Weld ( Don't You Cry for Me ) recaptures much of the excitment--that is, until he finds marital bliss in the early '40s and his story just fades away.
