I already had a copy of this book, but when I saw it advertised on Amazon Marketplace I decided to get a copy for my daughter. Maurice Elvey, the director of the David Lloyd George film, was my uncle and godfather, so I have a personal interest in anything relating to his many films. The book, published by the University of Wales press, basically consists of a series of essays which draw together the incredible (almost unbelievable) story of a silent film which was made in 1918 but not screened until 1996. For some inexplicable reason the film 'The Life Story of David Lloyd George' was mysteriously withdrawn before it even received its first trade screening. The film was for many years considered 'lost' or 'destroyed' until quite by chance the complete negative was found amongst material submitted to the Wales Film and Television Archive by Lloyd George's grandson.
