During this period, the Sherman brothers build a partnership, that enjoys some success. Along the way there are anecdotes relating to leading show people of the day. Especially the brief encounter with a then unknown Elvis Presley!
The story never becomes boring, as "Moose" finds true love and builds a family. Then there explodes the apex of the Sherman brothers, as they join the the Disney Empire, becoming close with the great "Walt" himself.
This story continues to enthrall, as the Mary Poppins, Jungle Book and then Chitty Chitty Bang Bang era brings success and Academy Awards. But this was not to be the end ..........The rest is for the discerning reader. Amore original showbiz related story.
But this book is probably most interesting when he tells us of his experiences during the war. Very graphic descriptions of his experiences in hospital wards after he was wounded. A great man and a fascinating book. Not chronological - he flits from incident to incident - so great to read at odd moments.
