Though the actual screenplay of "Jacob's Hands," the tale of a naive faith healer in the 1920s, apparently no. .Not surprisingly, Jacob is discovered by a huckster who uses the healer's love for Sharon (who has become a cynical, opportunistic entertainer) to turn him into a saleable commodity.
Though the actual screenplay of "Jacob's Hands," the tale of a naive faith healer in the 1920s, apparently no longer exists, a narrative treatment of it was recently located among Huxley's remaining papers and is now being published. While elements of the tale are clearly reminiscent of these writers (Huxley's bemused fascination with America's pursuit of fame and fortune; Isherwood's deep interest in spirituality), the prose is at best workmanlike.

Very well performed audiobook featuring Burt Reynolds as Jacob. Jacob discovers When Aldous Huxley and Christopher Isherwood get together, they write a fable. Whoda thunk it? Not I at least. A perfect little gem of a tale,about a man who has the gift of healing and his desire for doing the right thing, even if it means losing the girl.
