Summary
Hollywood superstar; Oscar-winning director; greatest stage actor of the 20th century. The era abounded in great actors - Gielgud, Richardson, Guinness, Burton, O'Toole -but none could challenge Laurence Olivier's range and power. By the 1940s he had achieved international stardom
Summary
The award-winning biographer of King Edward VIII draws on previously unavailable materials to illuminate the achievements that rendered Olivier one of the most distinguished actors of the 20th century and his surprising decision to become the low-paid founding director of the National Theatre
