In Dirk Bogarde: Rank Outsider, Morley tells it like it is, or rather, as he sees the career and films of Dirk Bogarde. Some of his descriptions are downright hilarious, such as his depiction of the making of "Song Without End" and his synopsis of "The Singer Not the Song," both of which are brilliant examples of his writing. Bogarde (understandably once you read this) didn't care for Morley -- I have a feeling their personalities would never have gelled. Nevertheless, this makes for an excellent read and gives some good background into the problems that beset "Song Without End," Bogarde's foray into Hollywood. He really should have taken the Jourdan role in "Gigi" instead.
A really great masterpiece not only for the Bogarde fans, but also for anyone who is interested to see and reas a multitalented human being.
