Product Description & Reviews
Laurence Olivier was the most famous actor of his century and one of the greatest of all time. His looks made him a matinee idol; his talent made him world-renowned as an actor, director, and producer. From his stage roles as Hamlet and Archie Rice to his screen roles as Heathcliff and Henry V, his range was unparalleled. But beneath the glamorous image, Olivier was often lonely, confused, and plagued by self-doubts. In this revealing account, Spoto tells for the first time the truth about Olivier's three marriages: to the diffident lesbian actress Jill Esmond, to the haunted and doomed Vivien Leigh, and to the young Joan Plowright. Olivier also reveals his relationships with Noel Coward and Danny Kaye, who loved him. Amid these personal dramas, Laurence Olivier's life encompasses the history of the theater in our time. Based on formidable international research, this is a rich, definitive biography.
