Description
Information
The acclaimed biography of Laurence Olivier is reissued to coincide with the centenary of his birth.

Laurence Olivier was both an enchanter and a force of nature. In 'The Real Life of Laurence Olivier', Roger Lewis goes beyond the magical illusions the actor created to tell the truth about the man's sexuality, ambition, revenges, power, preoccupations and achievements.

Most of all, Olivier's life and work become a love story -- the tale of the relationship with Vivien Leigh, who was destroyed by the extent of her passion for him, as he himself was cast into a frenzy of guilt and disillusionment.
