Brian Desmond Hurst was a wonderfully exotic character, highly talented and, clearly, a most colourful companion. We should be very grateful to Christopher Robbins for bringing him back from the relative obscurity into which his reputation has fallen with the passage of time. He describes their eccentric friendship so successfully that one feels on reading this excellent book that one has actually met and known his subject. I recommend it unconditionally to anyone who enjoys classic films and who likes to spend time in amusing, and often surprising, company.
