Strangers in Paradise - The Hollywood Emigres 1933-1950 by John Russell Taylor

Christopher Webb 1983.

I met John Russell Taylor in Hollywood in around 1975. I was introduced to him by John Kobal, who owned the Kobal Collection of film stills. After he’d gone, Kobal referred to him as a faggot. But John Kobal died in 1991, of AIDS.

Just before Kobal’s cremation the organist played “Smoke gets in your Eyes”
