Film on CIA spymaster by son divides family
Sally Shelton-Colby needed to watch the documentary with friends, for emotional support. It concerned a dead man she’s still in love with, and was made by someone she rarely ever speaks to. The film: “The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby.’’ Its director and narrator: his second-oldest son, Carl Colby. Shelton-Colby, a former U.S. ambassador, was disturbed by her stepson’s take on her dead husband, and so is the rest of the Washington-based Colby clan.
