Once a Saint : An Actor's Memoir Hardback

Hardback

Description

'A wickedly entertaining new memoir' Daily MailAccording to the Daily Mail Ian Ogilvy was 'the undisputed star of 1970s TV as the dashing Simon Templar in Return Of The Saint'.

The show turned him into a household name, causing him to be touted as the next James Bond.

From a liberal upbringing in post-war Britain, boarding school escapades and life at RADA, Ogilvy enjoyed an acting career spanning more than fifty years, including TV show Upstairs, Downstairs and films Witchfinder General, No Sex Please: We're British and Death Becomes Her.

His story plays host to a spectacular all-star cast including Boris Karloff, Hayley Mills, Penelope Keith, Derek Nimmo, Timothy Dalton, Derek Jacobi and Meryl Streep, and Ogilvy gives a vivid account from behind the scenes of the Golden Age of television and film. Once a Saint is an amusing and unvarnished story: a tremendously endearing tale from a working actor.

His story is modest and endlessly charming, told in such a way that opens a reader's heart to him.
