For me, the scanty details of Colby’s later years are as mystifying as the rest of his life, and somehow even more stunning. But attempts to link his final disappearance to his career were clearly a romantic embellishment that a “spymaster” like Colby would probably have dismissed. Like his son, we’ll never understand exactly what enabled Bill Colby to become such an important actor in the political and military history of the 20th Century. But when you see this film, you’ll never forget that he was.
“The Man Nobody Knew” opened Sept. 23 in New York.
