Mary Welsh, Martha Gellhorn, Hadley Richardson discussed on Jimmy Barrett


They would take part in. Then I call it the cocktail circuit. He was married to pelline. Their divorce was finalized in 19 forties. Okay, and he leaves he she stays. She stays. She stays here until the end of her life in 1951. So in a lot of ways, this is really Pauline's house. She's just not the famous one who lived here. And when he came back, he said he found it too sad to come back. Yes, he Hemingway was either the life of the party or he was burning bridges left and white right, so he had burned a lot of bridges in his divorce with Pauline. So the island was never a comfortable place for him to be again. So he stayed in Cuba, which gave him access to the deep sea fishing and the Spanish culture that you love. Was this considered a nice house. Back then. An upper level has one of the reasons that this house stayed vacant for so long is because it was so big because it was so almost affordable. I'm not unaffordable to and it's a large packet of land even back then, and so it was almost unaffordable and very costly. The upkeep It's probably his wealth and her family wealth that made this possible for them. So in the twenties when he gets here, uh he didn't live in that house right away. No, he lived where When he first lived in an apartment and over the Ford Agency because that he came here because he's supposed to pick up on your Ford. And it wasn't ready and the four agency would above it was I had apartments and so they put him up in one day apartment. And, uh, he he liked it so much in he decided to come back right next year. I find it so interesting that he came here and there was no no one around. No, no one was around, and he said he ordered his books wants to show people what he actually does for a living. They didn't know who he was. They could You send some of my books down when I found Also interesting is that Key West was going bankrupt around the Depression. Yes, Yes, it was. It went from in a span of life. I want to say, maybe 30. This year's It went from being the one of the wealthiest cities per capita in America to being the poorest. Um, so and the depression with, you know the fishing in the shipping industries. So where does this room this is the dining room. And if you look right here, this is the way Ernest Hemingway looked when he lived in Key West, and he looks a little bit more like Burt Reynolds or Magnum P. Then he does like Santa Claus and the pictures are used to seeing and then he's young and he's handsome and he's attractive. And he really he knows it. And that's how we end up with the four wives. I'm pretty sure that police his ex wife didn't have the other ex wives on the wall. But this does give you an idea. He had four wives. Yes, we call this the wall of lives. So we have Hadley Richardson, who was the parish years if you will. Read the book to Paris wife that spot her, um, a Pauline Pfeiffer, who you know, was his wife within this house. Martha Gellhorn, who stole Hemingway from Pauline. Pauline didn't even realize what was going on. Despite the fact that Martha was doing to her what she had done to happily, um, but they moved to Cuba and then, um, when Hemingway started the affair with Mary Welsh in World War two After stealing that job from Martha Gellhorn cover World War two. He stole that job from her. She left him over that affair, And then he married Mary Welsh and she was his wife until the end. The alleged both Cuba and either we'll be right back with more of what made America great with Brian killed me of Fox News of Radio special.
