Countless hours of research followed: pouring over family archives, visiting metropolitan libraries, corresponding with curators, scouring articles, and conducting interviews. Uncovered were newsreels, a 78-rpm recording, films, scripts, press photos, kinescopes, and anecdotes. Puzzling together and crafting the story was a labor of love. The result was Sharkey: When Sea Lions Were Stars of Show Business (1907-1958).
