Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sparks Fly Upward (Panther Books) (Paperback)
This is one great book , well written , honest , funny , sad ! It has it all from one of the Great British stars.
So many funny stories, I want write them here but names of David Niven , Larry Olivier , Bill wilding, etc are all over this book also Howard Hughes who Mr G planned to kill ! its all here ! The story about toast I nearly wet myself it was so funny ive never heard anything like it before.
The ending is sad when his wife divorces him and he asks " There isnt anyone else is there" ? says Granger " on No darling, there isnt ! I love you but cant be with you " says Simmons and them a few months later she marries Richard Brooks the Director of Elmer Gantry which she starred in with Burt Lancaster.
Mr G. left Hollywood because he didnt want to run into his Ex ! This from a man who shot a tiger thru the mouth, a huge rhino thru the head and a buffalo 5 times there must be something more ?
