About Burt Boyar

Burt was a syndicated Broadway columnist in New York until he and his late wife, Jane, met and became best friends with Sammy Davis, Jr. and together they wrote Sammy's internationally Best Selling autobiography, YES I CAN. The NY Herald Tribune critic, Maurice Dolbier,called it "One of the most candid, engrossing and important American autobiographies of our time." And Brothers Judd-Audible.com wrote, "..one of the really great autobiographies ever written."
Jane and Burt rented a beach house in Marbella, Spain for 9 months and stayed for 28 years, giving up a rent-controlled apartment on Park Avenue in New York. They traveled the world for two years with the greatest tennis players of the time, Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall, etc and wrote the novel WORLD CLASS based on the dynamics of the world class athlete. Then, with Sammy, they wrote WHY ME? a sequel to YES I CAN. And, as a result of living in Spain for so long, in a house owned by General Franco's daughter, they wrote the historically valuable HITLER STOPPED BY FRANCO. After Jane's passing of a heart attack in her sleep Burt returned home to the U.S and settled in Los Angeles.
