The passing of time makes it increasingly difficult to verify or refute the various versions of his life and career, since many of his former close associates like his Australian colleagues Max Moore and Alan Heffernan are now deceased. Although both men wrote memoirs of their collaboration with Gordon, their accounts suggest that Gordon himself was the likely source of many of these contradictory tales, and that he may well have concocted these stories to cover his real activities – although of course his motive for doing so can never be known.
There are also notable periods for which there is little or no information about his whereabouts and activities, such as his mysterious trip to America in , including his alleged “nervous breakdown” and extended hospitalisation in Hawaii, his movements and activities after final departure from Australia in , and his death in London in However, other sources claim that Gordon was in fact born in in Coral Gables , Florida.
By the time Gordon graduated from college, he had already begun his involvement in show business, presenting a jazz concert in an ice rink in Muskegon, Michigan. With noted publicist Benn F. Reyes who was to play a major role in the Big Show tours Gordon promoted a ‘Shakespeare in the Round’ project, and then worked for a time with Royal American Shows, a large Tampa-based travelling carnival.
For unknown reasons, Gordon left America sometime in the mid s and reportedly worked in several ‘colourful’ overseas business enterprises – in Lima, Peru , he was involved in a direct mail business, and later he moved to Havana, Cuba , where he exported cigars and roses to the United States and booked American acts into the famous Tropicana Club , Havana’s famous open-air nightclub. The dating of his involvement with the Tropicana is uncertain, although it is possible that he was working there during the period that the Miami Mafia took control of the club in Accounts of Gordon’s activities and whereabouts in the years between his return from Cuba in the late s and his move to Australia in vividly illustrate the contradictory, probably exaggerated and possibly even fictitious stories that Gordon told about his life.
In this case, although there are several key elements in common, there are at least three extant versions of his life during this time, each of which differ notably in the details of events and locations. According to one version, he opened a chain of sixty “House of Grams” and “House of TV” retail stores in the USA, but his gimmicky sales pitches supposedly angered the powerful US Electrical Retailers’ Association, and Gordon was allegedly forced out of business, incurring a heavy financial loss.
