Sheridan Morley's 'The Other Side of The Moon' is a terrific, page-turning look at the complex actor we knew and loved as David Niven, and is a must have book for movie buffs.
The best-selling autobiographies "The Moon's A Balloon" and "Bring On The Empty Horses", full of a rich treasure trove of stories of the golden days of Hollywood, never revealed more than a glimmer of Niven himself.
"The Other Side Of The Moon" provides an insight behind the self-deprecatory reticence of Niven's own writing, not only the highs but also the deep tragedy that he skirts around in stiff-upper lipped fashion in his own writing.
For fans of the raconteur and bon viveur that Niven epitomised for many, there are more anecdotes and show business gossip. This charting of Niven's life is unashamedly about the man himself though.
His marriages, affairs and escapades are all recounted with affection and details that are humorous, sometimes scandalous. but always deeply moving.
