In Bennett Cerf's autobiography, the great American publisher of Joyce tells

According to Cerf, Joyce loved the camera and always made it a point of
shooting movies of friends and visitors. I believe there is even a still of Cerf

whereabouts? Cerf says Joyce was mad about movies. One can only imagine who is
