The book is in near fine condition (burgundy cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with light creasing to the head and tail of the spine. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has fraying to the head of the spine, light rubbing to edges and corners and a 2 cm closed tear to the bottom edge of the rear cover. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions. Laurence Olivier was a true legend. No classical actor had ever been such a dazzling star.
No star had been such a magnificent actor. In this marvellous autobiography Olivier tells his own story: his brilliant career as actor, director, film-maker and producer; his role as husband to three women including Vivien Leigh and Joan Plowright; and his many friendships - with Sir Ralph Richardson, Noel Coward and Sir Winston Churchill, to name just a few. This is more than just a memoir. It is a deeply felt testament by one of the most astonishingly gifted artists of all time.305 pages including Appendices, Select Chronology and Index.
