A Later Printing. First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Stewart Granger was one of the few British stars who made it as a swashbuckling Hollywood screen hero during the golden age of the movies. In his most famous roles — in films such as Scaramouche, King Solomon’s Mines and The Prisoner of Zenda — he established himself as a prototypical man of action — uncomplicatedly masculine, chivalrous, something of a buccaneer. His private life was complicated and tempestuous: there was a torrid affair with Deborah Kerr (subsequently his co-star in King Solomon’s Mines), and then marriage to the young screen idol Jean Simmons, who was the love of his life. Don Shiach’s biography is the first comprehensive account of a glamorous and contradictory star whose legacy is several memorable and classic films.”
