Ralph Richardson: An Actor's Life
Garry O'Connor (Author)

Garry O'Connor's critically acclaimed biography, now expanded and revised, is a warm and revealing portrait of an actor famous not only for his acting gifts but for his eccentric charm. Drawing on archives of the Old Vic and on many conversations with Sir Ralph and those around him, O'Connor has not only chronicled the events of a long, illustrious, and varied career, but has also, in a scries of interchapters with Richardson, given us a full sense of his character. In addition, this new edition includes his "Diary of a Biographer" which tells the story of his relationship with Richardson during the research and writing of this book.

The featured image shows Ralph Richardson as Macbeth from the 1952 Shakespeare Memorial Theatre production of Macbeth.
