An Audio BiographyAudiobook CD - 2008
Describing himself as being blessed with 'a talent to amuse', Sir Noel Coward was for more than half a century his own invention and contribution to the world of show business. Playwright, actor, singer and songwriter his work spanned the decades from 1920s cafe society, through war-time patriotism and '60 cabaret in Las Vegas to a final film appearance opposite Michael Caine. Sir Laurence Olivier, Lord Mountbatten, Dame Edith Evans, and Graham Payn are just some of the voices heard paying tribute to the urbane and elegant star in this audio biography. Written and narrated by Noel Coward's Literacy Executor, the broadcaster and critic Sheridan Morley, it includes extracts from interviews with Coward and his friends as well as several recordings of his best-loved songs. Together they form an insightful, often amusing and always fascinating picture of one of the twentieth century's theatre greats.
