Drama disguised as autobiography …

ACT ONE,’ BY MOSS HART. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Now that I’ve finished Act One, 
it seems clear why Hart “edited” this scene of his life. The whole book is a lesson in storytelling. The truth spoiled the mood of the act, so he fixed it, as a good playwright does.

I remember seeing Moss Hart on the Jack Paar show. Always a fascinating guest.
