" in this... autobiography, Lawrence Olivier describes his eventful public & private life as only he cam." ..."Best rmemebered for his great classic roles at the Old Vic, and for his magnificent Shakspearian films: HenryV, Hamlet, & Richard III, [by English audiences}, but it is with Rebecca and Wuthering Heights that he also became an international film star of the first rank... a position he has constantly reaffirmed in contemporary roles... in The Entertainer and Bride'shead Revisted." "His passionate personal accounts (really bring this book to life)..."his childhood, his 1st marriage to JIll Esmond, the tempestuous relationship with Vibian Leigh, and his deeply fullfilling marriage to Jaon Plowright."
"He recalls, too,"(his many theatre friends): Ralph Richardson, Noel Coward, the Lunts, Edith Evans, John Gilgood, Charlie Chaplin, Garbo, Danny Kaye, John Mills, Marily Monroe, director Alfred Hitchock,"with insight and humor."
