Who was the luckiest man who ever lived?
I often find myself wondering what Greer was really like in
person. What was it like to be at a party with her, to work on
a movie set beside her, to talk to her about something very
personal, to talk to her in bed, to wake up with her, to spend a
day alone with her.
And I find myself envying each of the men who were famously
associated with her.
But which of those men would I like to have been?
Walter worked with her closely for years, befriending
her, kissing her, talking to her, and having fun with
Perhaps this makes him the luckiest, for he had an ideal
relationship with Greer. He was a very close friend, he
spent a lot of time with her, but he didn't have to
endure the rigours of marriage.
My guess is that Greer was too much for a younger man
like Ney to handle. Their difference in background and
maturity probably made their marriage unsustainable.
But perhaps he was the luckiest because he was married
to her while she was still in her prime and at the height of
her beauty and popularity.
Buddy spent more time with her than either of the other
two, which might make him automatically the luckiest.
