Sweet Caress

Amory Clay's first memory is of her father doing a handstand - but it is his absences that she chiefly remembers. Her Uncle Greville, a photographer, gives her both the affection she needs and a camera, which unleashes a passion that irrevocably shapes her future. She begins an apprenticeship with him in London, photographing socialites for magazines. But Amory is hungry for more and her search for life, love and artistic expression will take her to the demi-monde of 1920s Berlin, New York in the 1930s, the Blackshirt riots in London, and France during the Second World War, where she becomes one of the first women war photographers. In this enthralling story of a life fully lived, William Boyd has created a sweeping panorama of the twentieth century, told through the camera lens of one unforgettable woman.

Boyd, William

▪ American actor
born June 5, 1898, Hendrysburg, Ohio, U.S.
died Sept. 12, 1972, Hollywood
 American motion-picture and television actor who was best known for his portrayal of Hopalong Cassidy in a series of western films.

      Although born in Ohio, he grew up (from the age of 7) in Oklahoma and attended school only until he was 13. Thereafter, he held many odd jobs until, at the age of 20, he set out for California. Boyd began his film career in 1918 with a role in Cecil B. deMille's Old Wives for New, and he appeared throughout the 1920s in films made by deMille. He first played the role of the cowboy hero in 1935 in the film Hopalong Cassidy. With his tall stature and white hair, Boyd was a distinctive figure; wearing a black hat and costume and riding a white horse, he quickly became identified by the public with the screen hero. He played the role in subsequent films until the late 1940s and then reenacted it for a television series, also called Hopalong Cassidy (1952–54).
