Video: 18 seconds of James Joyce in Paris in the 1920s

From Open Culture

The narrator of this rare clip describes James Joyce โ€” arguably the greatest novelist of the 20th century โ€” as a "small, thin, unathletic man with very bad eyes."


And it gets worse.

According to the voiceover, when Joyce and drinking buddy Ernest Hemingway faced a potential brawl, Joyce would hide behind his more imposing comrade and shout "Deal with him, Hemingway, deal with him!!!"
