I'm not quite sure where to post this so I hope it's OK here. I'm looking for a good O'Neill biography. Can anyone reccommend one?

I moved it to Talking About Talkies, Site Chat is for things specifically related to the operation of NitrateVille.

Several years ago, I spent a few hours in a library going through Stephen A. Black's O'Neill biography:

I didn't read it cover to cover and can't compare it with other works on O'Neill, but Black seemed to have a good handle on his subject. Several passages and descriptions have stayed with me all this time, and it seems as good of a place to start as any.

OK, thanks. As it wasn't really film-related I wasn't sure.

Harold,
Thank you. That sounds good.
