This bio is the first to cover in full an astonishing career, spanning nearly 80 years in films, television, and theatre. Entertaining and meticulously researched, the author talked to hundreds of friends and colleagues of Gielgud to compile the book. It provides a revealing picture of his celebrated rivalry with Laurence Olivier, his deep friendships with Ralph Richardson, and his on stage partnerships with Edith Evans, Peggy Ashcroft and more.
