You may have been seeing stories out of Australia about actor Tom Cruise and an Australian billionaire named James Packer. These stories caught us by surprise for two reasons.

1: Most of what's in them was already covered by Steve Cannane in his excellent 2016 book Fair Game.

And 2: All of the stories are missing the single most interesting thing about the Packer-Cruise friendship, in part because of Australian law.

We're not bound by that law, so we're going to tell you that piece they're leaving out, but first we need to set the table a bit.
