In these three articles, Grant goes into a great deal of personal recollection and introspection on his childhood, his attraction to show business, his personal life and his stardom.  Part I covers his childhood until he came to  America with the Pender Troupe.  Part II covers his early years working in New York City and offers his insights into several key people in his life.  Part III starts in 1922 and takes him through his early years in Hollywood and his psychiatric use of LSD.   Originally these articles were to have been written by Joe Hyams who sent the articles to Grant for approval.  Grant then rewrote the articles.  Hyam's by-line was removed and he and Grant split the $125,000 fee.
