'She gazed at me with what I took to be adoration. I gave her a light kiss on the lips. "Is it better the second time?" she said' Richard Browning is a crack-shot, six-foot, all-Australian ex-private-school horseman. He is determined to con his way into the new world of film-making, but his way to Hollywood is thwarted by World War One, a series of unfortunate affairs and a disastrous marriage. In his developing career as box office poison, Browning makes more enemies than movies. 'Box Office' Browning is Browning's recollection of his early days from an ungraceful old age. The truth may be filtered through booze, drugs and a lot of years, but the escapades with the famous and the infamous are a delight. "'Box Office' Browning is rollicking good fun." - Herald
