Farley Granger, the star of Hitchcock’s Rope, led a charmed life, as he recounts in Include Me Out. He mingled with Bogie, Judy Garland, and Noël Coward (who wanted to bed him) while having affairs with Ava Gardner, Leonard Bernstein, and Shelley Winters.

Inspiration
After seeing Ethel Merman, the theater became his ”destiny.”

Last Word
Kudos for candor, but this memoir seldom digs deep.
