“Sir Laurence Olivier was one of the most versatile actors and directors of our age. A daring and much-lauded theatrical performer whose triumphant career spanned six decades, Olivier was also a movie star of the first magnitude, a film director whose Shakespearean adaptations are renowned, and an accomplished stage director who founded the National Theatre of Britain.
“In this often hilarious and witty account, Olivier describes his professional progress from his early stage performances with the Old Vic to his international film roles in ‘Wuthering Heights’ and ‘Rebecca’ and his television performances in ‘Brideshead Revisited’ and ‘King Lear’. He writes of his friendships with Sir Ralph Richardson and Sir John Gielgud, of the stage fright that tormented him for years, and of his three marriages, including his heartbreaking relationship with Vivien Leigh. Here is Laurence Olivier’s life story in his own words.”
