Sir John Gielgud's acting career was among the most distinguished of his generation. In a lifetime that lasted nearly a century, he appeared in hundreds of theatrical productions and films, receiving virtually every acting honor given, including an Academy Award for his performance as Hobson the butler in the film Arthur. Now, in this insightful authorized biography, written with unprecedented access to Gielgud's diaries and personal letters, author Sheridan Morley traces not only the actor's career, but gives a refreshingly frank look into Gielgud the man, and how his professional success as an actor often came at the expense of his personal happiness.
Sheridan Morley is an award-winning theatre critic and broadcaster. He is also the author of several biographies, with subjects that range from Noël Coward and David Niven to his late father, Robert Morley, and grandmother, Dame Gladys Cooper. He lives in London.
