Stewart Granger book.

Stewart Granger: The Last of the Swashbucklers. I loved the book because Stewart was a Teenage idol in postwar Germany. British movies made our life among the rubble of a defeated country bearable and as a child his movies provided a glimpse of a better life.

Compared to Brando, Beatty or Granger, Mae West was a paragon of the Protestant work ethic.

Marlon Brando: The Naked Actor by George Englund (271pp, Gibson Square Books, £1. 9) Warren Beatty: A Private Man by Suzanne Finstad (587pp, Aurum, £20) Stewart Granger: The Last of the Swashbucklers by Don Shiach (275pp, Aurum, £1. 9) Mae West: It Ain't No Sin by Simon Louvish (491pp, Faber, £20). George Englund, author of the Brando memoir, gets a walk-on part in the Beatty biography as Joan Collins's married lover. Doing a book-signing for his autobiography, Granger recognised the bent, elderly woman waiting in line for her book to be autographed. Compared to Brando, Beatty or Granger, Mae West was a paragon of the Protestant work ethic.

Stewart Granger was one of the few British actors who made it as a swashbuckling Hollywood screen idol during the golden age of movies. His most famous roles—in films like Scaramouche, The Prisoner of Zenda, and King Solomon’s Mines—established him as a prototypical man of action: undeniably masculine, chivalrous, and something of a buccaneer. Granger’s time at the top, however, was short. Not only did Hollywood move on to more complex films, starring more youthful, enigmatic stars such as James Dean and Marlon Brando, but Granger also gained a reputation for being difficult. The later years of his life were characterized by parts in TV westerns, before a belated comeback in The Wild Geese. His private life was both complicated and spectacular—a torrid affair with Deborah Kerr and then marriage to Jean Simmons, the love of his life. In his new biography, film historian Don Shiach offers the first serious account of Stewart Granger’s life and career.

I've always liked him. It was fun to read about his life. Not a great book, but a fun book for anyone who enjoys the "old Hollywood"..a time that will never, ever be seen again.

It is all too obvious that Don Shiach's book `The last of the Swashbucklers' on the life of Stewart Granger is nothing but a critical attack, He probably tried to accomplished his endeavor to write this critical attack on the autobiography, `Sparks Fly Upward', written by Stewart Granager which he quotes often. It is not a `vivid portrait'. It must stem from Shach's background that continues to haut him in making an effort to be condescending in order to blow his own horn on the lives of others in order to seek some acclaim to bolster his own ego as an author. The only true quality of the book is the insert of pictures leaving the written description set aside. What people don't do in order to make a buck!
