It covers his rise to stardom, the famous ladies in his life & many genuinely funny incidents & anecdotes.
The first time I read it I was unable to put it down as it had me in stitches of laughter. But of course there are serious moments which Mr Granger has a wonderful way of recounting.
Even if you've never heard of Stewart Granger you will enjoy his memories of being a leading male actor in the 40's & 50's, first in Britain & then in America.
This is a wonderful book, don't miss out.
I had always been a Granger Fan since my Dad put on King Solomon's Mines for us to watch when I was 14 and hoped to find a copy of his autobiography some day (thanks amazon.)
The man's gracious and humble yet firm and determined attitude showed beautifully on paper, and was such a breath of fresh air after seeing that all the flash in the pan "celebrities" of the 21st century have all had their story told after 3 films/chart topping tracks.
The book could never let you stay in one mood for more than 2 pages. On the one hand, his life was a fun filled adventure, from modest beginnings as girl chasing film extra to defending the Scottish coast during the Second World War, success in Hollywood and adventure holidays in Africa and India hunting big game, on the other hand, his constant struggling as an actor, a husband and a father were very moving. He fought for his career against the studios, he fought for his wife against Howard Hughes, and he fought to give his children the happy home they would never have.
Buy this book, and you are guaranteed the funniest and most thrilling life story you will ever read.
5 STARS, 100%, 10/10, whatever you want to say!!!
Inside stories and a splendid portrayal of the Hollywood and British film industry in the 50's.
A perfect holiday entertainment, as a good a read as I have had.
Mr.Granger is honest enough to admit his own faults and is not afraid to say his opinion on those he loved and trusted.
A very enjoyable book much like the several romantic films he made.Witty,charming and hugely entertaining.

Granger writes surprising well. Life is full of choices, quite a few of which he picked wrong, but that is the way of things. I greatly enjoyed the book. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Griselda
I read this book back in the 80's when it was first released. Interesting that his actual name was James Stewart and had to change it when he became an actor.... Read morePublished on 13 May 2014 by WJ
