Storyline

Starting where The Sid Saga Part 1 (1985) leaves off, Sid Laverents continues to tell his life story. It's now 1927, Sid is nineteen years old, and is trying to make a career in vaudeville with his twenty-four year old girlfriend, Sue, in a novelty act, which on his side is his one-man band. Although they would get married a year later, they billed their act as a brother/sister one. They wanted to make it big in New York, but hit the theaters there, in their hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, and everywhere else in-between. They realized they had to travel to make a living since their act was a novelty one that would wear thin in one place. A natural disaster during one stint in Elba, Alabama not only threatened to wipe out their act, but to wipe them out literally. The advent of the talkies and the Great Depression would kibosh their vaudeville career. Taking odd jobs, both on and off the stage, over the next ten years would take its toll, and lead in part to the end of the marriage.... Written by Huggo

World War II and the Island Girls
29 September 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Part two of Sid Lavarent's life story is really the best part. It is where all the meat of it was. Here, Sid finally figures out that his wife is cheating on him, when she leaves town with another man. Sid, in his deadpan voice, remarks that all her friends were men, and he did not think about it until later, when she took off.

Sid was deep into his hobbies and activities, so in many ways he is like a kid who never grew up. I wonder if he was ever taking care of business with his wife? Anyhow, she divorces him, and then Sid sells his sign-painting business to move to Denver to find his ex-wife. Sid happens upon her just after her last boyfriend had dumped her, and so Sid takes her back.

Just after he re-marries his unfaithful wife, Sid gets drafted into the Army Air Corps and does not see her again for nearly three years. At this point, there is a lot of photos of Sid in the various islands he visited, and finally in India, where he was helping the Air Corps build airplane gear. There are also a few photos of nude island women, presumably girls that Sid was with.

When World War II is over, Sid gets discharged from the Army, and comes back home. Not long afterwards, his step-daughter is telling him that her Mom's men-friends are not just friends. Sid finally comes home early one day and catches his wife in the sack with another man. So he gets divorced again.

Now he focuses on his career working as an engineer for an airplane manufacturing company. That is about where part two of his life story ends. It is interesting to see who calmly Sid took all of the adultery that was going on in his home. He claims that his ex-wife eventually died of alcoholism.
