American Gore Vidal’s life (1925 – 2012) was impossibly interesting.
Watch some of it in the film above.
Born at West Point, NY, essentially working in the US Congress by 8 years old as an aide to his blind Congressman grandfather, flying aircraft home made by his engineer father at 10 and then becoming a professionally published writer at 21.
All of this before his life really started !
He is perhaps one of the first modern celebrities who never wanted that tag but he always had an opinion about everything… the correct opinion of course.
Check out the information about Gore Vidal on the internet. The world has lost much of the depth and colour that people like Vidal bought to it.
