And why not?, Memoirs of a film lover, signed

£4.99

Product description

Barry Norman fronted the seminal BBC film programme since FILM 72 and many mourned the moment he decided to leave. For nearly 30 years he established himself as the authority on film and has become the funniest, most iconoclastic and astute reviewer we know. During that time he met and fraternised with the cinematic greats - stars, directors and producers - and he now tells all in an honest, clever and humorous insider's look at the world of journalism, broadcasting and film. Barry's autobiography promises offbeat encounters with the likes of Sir David English, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Olivier, Peter Sellers, Madonna, Robert De Niro, Bruce Willis, Anthony Hopkins, Bob Hoskins, John Wayne, Rupert Murdoch and many more. With both his parents working in the world of film, Barry Norman was no stranger to the starry circles. From his childhood and early days as a journalist to his retirement from the BBC, and with forty years of the most fabulous anecdotes to be told both from the worlds of journalism and cinema, this is a witty and intelligently written story of a fascinating life.

Signed by the author, without dedication, on the title page.

Hard back book with dust jacket. Apart from the usual minor marks of use on the jacket, the book and jacket are in very good condition throughout.
