I love this book.
Sir John's lifestory spans most of the 20th century (he was born in 1908) and his book paints a wonderful picture of the halcyon days of the movie world. Sir John writes of happy and sad times and evokes wonderful imagery of times gone by, of people long since passed but not forgotten.
I enjoyed reading the first edition of this book about 15 years ago and this has led to a love for Noel Cowards plays and those wonderful 1940's and 50's films that Sir John starred in. His down to earth advice about relationships and the warmth and loyalty of his friendships are inspiring.
Sir John is one of our brightest stars ... it is difficult to paraise this book highly enough - simply a must read for anyone who loves the movies or the theatre.

A great read. John mills certainly knew how to enjoy his life, and in the process helped others to enjoy theirs.
He had the knack of creating an air of fun through his sunny personality, which shone out of the pages of his autobiography. Also, he was lucky in meeting Mary Haley Bell and marrying her. She was the love of his life, and he was left us in know doubt about her enriching his life. This book will cheer up the most miserable of persons.

A very interesting autobiography and quite amusing in places. A really enjoyable read, although not fully up to date as its a fairly old book..

Sir John Mills had a very long career indeed his two daughters followed in his footsteps and can still be seen on TV now, he acted mainly in the fifties in the old black and white war films but he also did some very good acting later on in his life
