Ernest Hemingway claimed he didn't want his biography written until at least 100 years after his death - but by then it might be hard to separate fact from fiction. This episode of Biography, narrated by Mariel Hemingway, follows in the footsteps of the Nobel Laureate in search of the enormous man behind the enormous myth. A fascinating trip through his world, the program travels from the hospital in Milan where he first found love to the resort community where, at age 61, he committed suicide. Rare film clips, excerpts from letters and unpublished works, and comments of those who knew him shed light on his remarkable life. Among those interviewed for this definitive portrait are his sons Jack and Gregory, his best friend A. E. Hotchner, Gregorio Fuentes (the model for Santiago in The Old Man and the Sea), publisher Charles Scribner III, hunter Clara Spiegel, and matador John Fulton.
