    Is This What Holden Caulfield Looks Like?

    Or just a phony actor? You decide.

    In Chapter 13 of The Catcher In The Rye...

    Sunny sits on Holden's lap and changes the subject...

    According to author Peter Beidler, that movie is "Captains Courageous" (1937) starring Spencer Tracy.

    This is Freddie Bartholomew, the boy who falls off the boat in "Captains Courageous"

    What do you think?

    Does the Holden you picture look like Freddie Bartholomew?

    It's partly true, too, but it isn't all true. People always think something's all true.
