We take a walk through The Times archives. It started with a speech by Vice President Dan Quayle during campaign season for the first President George Bush, who was angling for a second term. Mr. Quayle was talking about family values. Murphy Brown had just aired its Season 4 finale in which Ms. Brown, an unmarried news anchor, gave birth to a baby boy. Quayle said the character was mocking the importance of fathers, by bearing a child alone, and calling it just another ‘lifestyle choice. The blowback from liberals was swift, and an early skirmish in the culture war was on.

Sir Anthony's autobiography reads like a novel, and that is not surprising, as he wrote two novels, as well as being one of the great twentieth-century British Shakespearian actors, a director of plays, manager of British theatres, hero of WWII (he parachuted into a horribly dangerous partisan situation in Albania), and finally a devoted husband and father. Americans may remember him best for his roles in "The Guns of Navarone" and "Damn the Defiant."

Worth reading even by those who are not familiar with Sir Anthony's work, for its account of how a brave and talented man approached life. He quotes from a great navigator, Dr David Lewis:

There seems to be a restless spirit inherent in the very nature of mankind that impels us across new frontiers . . . . it may be equally expressed in searching for truer forms of artistic expression; in seeking into the workings of the mind and soul of man . . . . Thus each of us has his own deeming, possesses the potential for his own personal kind of adventure.

Besides being a great actor, Sir Anthony Quayle, is a gifted writer too. I just enjoyed reading so much about his early life, his war experiences, and his acting career. I first came to like this actor when I first saw him play the character of Sir John Falstaff in Henry iv part 1 and 2 when I was in High School. He was such a good actor in those plays that were produced by The BBC in 79/80, that his portrayal and the play inspired me to watch and read many more Shakespeare plays. Sir Anthony Quayle, had a successful career, but in the pages of the book you discover that his character and life experiences equipped him to be a great actor.. He knew he was gifted, but he was humble about it as well.

An immensely readable account of the early life and military career of one of the greatest actors of the 20th century. The author’s account of his theatrical career is sadly crammed and rushed in the last 40 pages as he struggles to complete the book in the face of terminal illness.
