Danny was no saint, but for Donald Spoto`s Kaye/Olivier `romance` to work, Danny would not only have to have been bi-sexual - HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO BE CAPABLE OF BI-LOCATION! And in the case of one London `assignation`, Spoto conveniently ignores that Olivier`s teenage son was with him. Read NOBODY`S FOOL by Martin Godfried for a non-tabloid record of this magical entertainer`s life. And take anything written by Donald Spoto about ANYBODY with a couple of boxcars load of salt! His `biography` of Marlene Dietrich was a simple-minded recycling of the fables Dietrich began spewing when, sadly enough, senility robbed this (in earlier times) unpretentious woman of her essence, losing her in the forest of her own mythology. Spoto seems to `homonize` those men he wants to sleep with and deify those women he wants to be. Just my observation. That and a dime`ll buy you....Lord! WHAT WILL a dime buy you these days?
