FROM THIS EPISODE

The story of a man who was a preacher-in-training in the 1940's, a movie actor and beat generation writer in the 50's, a man in a gray flannel suit in the 60's, a drug-using, partying suburbanite in the 70's, a born-again Christian during the Reagan era. Fifty years of American history wrapped up in one man's life, and told by his 9 children from five marriages.
