  • Oscar Wilde, poet, writer, and out-of-control hedonist
  • Dutch Shultz, mobster, murderer, extortionist, gambler , and “Public Enemy Number One”
  • Patricia Neal, ambitious actress and Academy Award Winner – and abortion survivor
  • John Wayne, wildly beloved actor, drinker, and adulterer
  • Alexis Carrel, Nobel Prize Winning doctor and brilliant inventor, and skeptic
  • King Charles II, Buffalo Bill, Wallace Stevens, Kenneth Clark, John von Neumann, Aubrey Beardsley, Heywood Broun, and Gary Cooper.
