This publicity-haunted story (for those of us old enough to remember when it was scandale du jour) turns out to be muchmore subtle and romantic than the journalists everprotrayed (Surprise!). Chris and Don become a myth-making model of a gay marriage: Chris's role changes from mentor and protector to colleague and equal lover. Don changes from infatuated playboy to serious artistic collaborator and caretaker. The beuty of their love through the changing epochs of the relationship and stages of life was inspiring to me. It's just a good love story -- without the headline-grabbing issue of same-sex issues.
