Shane and Member of the Wedding are two of my favorite movies and when I realized there was no information out there about the enchanting and brilliant child actor who starred in both, I decided to write the book. Through interviews with everyone from Brandon's grade school buddies to Julie Harris and members of the Burrito Brothers, I traced his path from King of the Child Stars in glamorous 1950s Hollywood to musician consort to Peter Fonda and Gram Parsons in the freewheeling, drug-fueled California of the 1960s. All Fall Down illuminates the inexorable curse of child stardom, the tragic fraying of family bonds and the restorative power of love.
