It's interesting to see how The Toronto Star really sparked Hemingway's career, and how his history there made him one of the most reputable American authors and journalists of the 20th-century.

I wonder if Clive Owens utilized Hemingway's time at The Toronto Star to get into character for his role as Ernest Hemingway in the recent HBO film 'Hemingway and Gellhorn' with Nicole Kidman.

Thanks for the visit!
I didn't see the movie - I've seen mostly negative reviews. Did you like it?
