Biography & Memoir • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Laurence Olivier's life was far more interesting and unusual than most of us would have ever imagined. Donald Spoto's definitive biography is exhaustively researched and covers virtually every event in the life of one of the great actors of the twentieth century. The book meticulously covers Olivier's life in full, lurid, yet tasteful detail. Whether discussing Olivier's childhood, his three marriages, his relationships with Noel Coward and Danny Kaye, or his bouts of loneliness, Spoto reveals a seldom-seen side of this actor, director, and producer. Frederick Davidson's narration is flawless. Davidson maintains the brilliance of the biography with a superb performance that is every bit as wonderful as the book itself. While long, the book glides along, keeping the listener wanting to hear more. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
