This review is from: Hello: The Autobiography (Paperback)
I was really pleased to see that Leslie Phillips had written his autobiography as I've always wanted to know a little more about him. I've grown up watching him starring in comic roles in the "Carry On" films and the "Doctor" film series and I've also enjoyed his later straight roles whether they've been in film or TV. :-)
Leslie Phillips was born in Tottenham in 1924, he'd a very hard up bring and mainly lived in poverty for most of his childhood. He lost his father when he was 10yrs old and decided he wanted to get a job to help out his mother with the bills. Leslie began his theatrical career before the war and later got into films.
Throughout his book he tells us about the famous people he's worked with and about his many struggles during his career. Leslie also tells us about how he different from his onscreen persona as a bounder.
Personally I found his book to be a compulsive, enjoyable and interesting read.:-)
I'd highly recommend it to anyone that's enjoyed watching the great Leslie Phillips in action.:-)
