    L'Amour dedicated this book to Alan Ladd and Ladd's best friend William Bendix It was published a couple years after they both died and I really felt while reading this that I could see and hear Alan Ladd as the main character Bendix was a little harder to pinpoint mostly because I haven't studied him like I have Ladd He actually would have worked well in multiple roles hereI know that when Alan Ladd starred in Guns of the Timberland 1960 which was
