A couple of weeks ago i saw Caravan at the NFT,shown in celebration of the 90th birthday of Jean Kent.It made me realise what a fine actor was Price.It makes you wonder why he didnt go off to Hollywood and forge a career for himself there like his contemporaries such as James Mason and Stewart Grainger.Instead after Kind Hearts it was really all downhill.This slow progression downward is affectionately charted by the author.No one has a bad word to say about him and maybe that was Prices problem.After all there are plenty who have put the knife in on Mason and Grainger and that pair ended up as the lead in films for many years to come.Poor old Price ended up making a living from cameos in horror films.In the end rather a sad and forlorn life drowning in booze.A sad story very well told.
I'd urge the author with all my heart to consider producing a Kindle edition.
Much as many people might like to read this, cost is really quite a serious problem. For one thing, with an unknown author the reader is taking pot luck, and this should be reflected in the price. For another, £25 for a 256 page book would be steep for the best-known biographer in the world.
