‘A highly readable work … Niven emerges as gallant and gracious.’ Chicago Tribune

Sheridan

Morley wrote this biography of the consummate on-screen English

gentleman after speaking to over 150 of Niven’s friends and colleagues

(only Rex Harrison refused). The result is a picture which both supports

and contradicts the charming vagabond persona depicted in Niven’s own

bestselling memoirs.

While millions throughout his life were

enchanted by Niven’s happy-go-lucky charisma and world-class anecdotage,

he was in many respects a private figure, haunted by a fear of failure,

and a victim of several key tragedies in his personal life. Morley’s

biography is a warm, appreciative but perceptive account which captures

both sides of one of Hollywood’s most enduringly lovable figures.

‘A

compassionate account that goes past the blithe persona … yet, there is

much humor—the actor’s and his biographer’s—in this notable book’ Publishers Weekly

‘Head and shoulders above the average showbiz biography … He understands many of Niven’s deeper feelings’ John Mortimer, Sunday Times

‘A

well-told story … the darker side as well as the mask of a complex and

perhaps desperate character. He was a life-enhancer off-screen as well

as on’ The Times

‘Shrewd and pleasing; shows how dark Niven’s moon could be’ Alexander Walker, Evening Standard
