Summary
Mose Sharp is the only boy among six sisters in a close-knit Jewish family in Valley Junction, Iowa. Dad dreams of Mose taking over the family business, but Mose has other plans. He heads for the vaudeville circuit and teams up with Rocky Carter. Carter and Sharp is what is known as a knockabout act, with Mose (now called Mike) playing straight man. Ten successful years in vaudeville take the two to radio, Broadway, and finally, in 1939, to Hollywood, where they churn out a series of feature films. After that comes a TV show. Meanwhile, Rocky drinks and goes through numerous wives, and Mike marries nice, artistic Jessica. But Mike's relationship with the volatile Rocky is the most enduring one he knows, and when the act breaks up in 1953, neither one ever gets over it
