This is a terrific book that would probably be best read as a companion to "Gielgud: A Life in Letters." brilliantly edited by Richard Mangan. This book gives you the picture of Gielgud he presented to the world, and it's full of triumphs and unforgettable personalities, and the letters show you the same life from the inside -- often bitchy, generous, grudging, hilarious, full of high hopes and times those hopes were dashed. Gielgud was as complex a man as he was great as an actor, and these two books, taken together, are probably the next-best thing to having known him personally and having lived at the center of the last great generation of British actors for whom the stage was the only really important medium..

Wonderful to hear his life in that beautiful voice

Heard the taped version of AN ACTOR AND HIS TIME, written

and read by Sir John Gielgud.

Gielgud, arguably the greatest Shakespearean actor of the 20th

century, is perhaps best known by modern audiences for his

starring role in ARTHUR . . . however, he appeared in well over

120 other movies and TV productions--in addition to his stage work.

While I found AN ACTOR AND HIS TIME moderately interesting,

I was disappointed that most of its emphasis was on Gielgud's

work on the English stage . . . I would have much preferred

more emphasis on his latter work.

In addition, I enjoyed hearing about such modern performers as

Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson . . . that said, tales of his

own great aunt Ellen Terry (also a star actress) were of little interest

to me.

The fact that AN ACTOR AND HIS TIME was narrated by Gielgud,

who still had a magnificent voice at the time of taping, helped maintain

my interest.

Here, JG reminisces to two writers about his past - this time it was for a series of audio interviews for the Beeb. After, they decided that with some book-like editing, it would make a good read - which it does. The only thing one misses is that voice - I would like to get the audio version some day. Get it.
