The path from the reclusive author to the French explorer is surprisingly exotic.

J.D. Salinger was a lover of Oona O’Neill, daughter of playwright Eugene O’Neill.

Before marrying Charlie Chaplin, Oona had also dated filmmaker Orson Welles. Actress Rita Hayworth was Welles’s second wife.

Hayworth’s third husband (of five) was Prince Aly Khan, whose first wife was Joan Guinness. (Hang in there.)

Loel Guinness, previously married to Joan, was an Irish business magnate who financed the purchase of the “Calypso” research vessel for Cousteau. The ship was featured in Cousteau’s 1956 documentary, “The Silent World.”

Salinger, forever intriguing to anyone who has read “The Catcher in the Rye,” is generating new buzz with the new movie, “Salinger,” scheduled for release on Sept. 6.
