My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I confess that when first I made acquaintance with Charles Strickland I never for a moment discerned that there was in him anything out of the ordinary.
A magnificent fictional biography of Paul Gauguin.
There are 4 movie versions of this book:
The Moon and Sixpence (1942) with George Sanders, Herbert Marshall, Doris Dudley.
The Moon and Sixpence (TV 1959) with Laurence Olivier, Judith Anderson, Hume Cronyn.
The Moon and Sixpence (BBC Play of the Month, 1967) with Charles Gray, Ronald Hines, Barry Justice.
The Moon and Sixpence (Somerset Maugham TV Theatre, 1951) with Romney Brent, Lee J. Cobb, Bramwell Fletcher.
Free download available at Project Gutenberg.
I wonder if Papeete has something left by the time Gauguin lived there.
