What Was That Book?

Years ago I read a paperback which I'm pretty sure was titled Max. I wish I knew who wrote it. It was about a guy who had to support his family at a young age, and was a very successful entrepreneuer. He made an impression on, and later married his teacher. When silent films came out, he saw a great opportunity and became quite wealthy. His wife leaves him and takes the kids and his money. And he doesn't really know what went wrong.

If this book is familiar to you, I would love to know who wrote it.

Aha!  I finally found it on Goodreads.  It is titled Max, and the author is Howard Fast.  I enjoyed this book, maybe you will, too.
