Excellent read!

This is one of my all time favourite autobiographies.

As above, this is a cracking read, even if you arent a big Niven fan when you start it, you may be by the time you finish!!

I have read this before it is really good, one I would read again

I always remember reading this autobiography in my early twenties. The whole book is enjoyable from start to finish, it's funny, sad and an eye opener on hollywood and the stars of the day. I always recall the name of the house he shared with Errol Flynn, 'Cirrhosis-by-the-Sea'. Apparently named because of the amounts of alcohol that was consumed there. This book would appeal to anyone interested in the golden era of hollywood.

If you like this autobigraphy you might also enjoy reading John Houston's autobiography as well.

Just looking for a biog to read - thanks!

Thank you! I loved this book but my copy got lost in a house move

If you google the life of Errol Flynn you will be amazed at his personal life, no wonder he died so young!

Flynn's autobiography was 10" long

Do you reckon its includes the parts when he had trysts with Rock Hudson, Dirk Bogarde et al . ?

I adored David Niven. So I really can't wait to read this book. All of the great reviews add to my anticipation.

I guess he liked boys as well, right?

no problem with that in the times we live in but I guess back then they kind of noticed?

This is a great book, now Bring On The Empty Horses!

Was going to say Bring On The Empty Horses is just as good a read. Both books 100% recommended. Heat added, I'm going to read it again!
