This second volume of Dirk Bogarde's acclaimed autobiography covers the years from World War II to the making of Death in Venice. These are the spellbinding years in which he transformed himself from a celebrity matinee idol into one of the finest actors of our time.
Begins at the start of World War II, with the trials of an army training camp at Catterick, and follows Bogarde's film career into Hollywood. He provides portraits of major figures in the film world and describes his greatest challenge - playing the role of von Aschenbach in "Death in Venice".
