"The surest way to attract attention in Hollywood is to appear to shun it." So said TIME Magazine in 1937 when it printed the first pictures of the enigmatic John Montague, considered by sportswriters and players to be one of the greatest golfers of his time. Why so publicity shy? It turns out that the hard-driving, hard-drinking golfer had a secret past he hid from his Hollywood pals. Montville uncovers the truth in this amusing story. Scott Brick's tongue-in-cheek narration highlights the humor without overdoing it. With Brick behind the mike, this overextended sports yarn gains momentum, the cracks in the narrative disappear, and the result is a solid, enjoyable listen.
